Jack Wilshere has been challenged to get back to his best and earn a new deal at Arsenal, although manager Arsene Wenger admits the chance to do so may come elsewhere.
“If he gets back to his best and wants to stay, we have to sit down, I think, later in the season. I don’t rule that out,” he said when asked if he planned to offer Wilshere a new deal.
“You know how much I love Jack and his talent, I started him at the age of 17 but today in the football world you need to be a consistent presence and what is at stake for Jack is not his quality, his talent or his determination, it is whether he is a consistent presence at the top.
“I hope he can manage to do that and after nobody questions his quality.”
