Jack Wilshere’s future should be decided next month – with his contract up in the summer.
Wilshere is yet to feature in the Premier League this season but has impressed in the Europa League.
And Arsene Wenger wants his future wrapped up before the end of the year.
“I said many times that [Wilshere’s future] would be decided in December,” the Gunners boss said. “I wanted to give him six months not to think about that and see where we go.
“I see him more as a player who can affect the game in the final third than a box to box player. I see him more as somebody who has a quick response, quick reactions in the final third and the quality of the pass in the final third.
“He turns well the game forward, he can chip a little ball, he can pass people on the short space. That’s why I think the system suits him well.”
