Arsenal are now in a position to fight Chelsea for the Premier League title but the future of the club is largely hinged on Wenger’s ability to retain the core of this team.
According to latest report, Jack Wilshere will decide his future with Arsenal at the end of the season, claims team mate Benik Afobe.
The midfielder, who is currently on-loan at Bournemouth, has just 18 months left on his contract at the Emirates and he’s yet to agree an extension.
The 25-year-old has impressed away from Arsenal and reports claim AC Milan are keen to bring him to Serie A next season, while Bournmouth are also hoping to keep him.
But Afobe, who is also a former Arsenal player, revealed Wilshere is in no rush to make a decision over his future.
‘To be honest, I don’t think he even knows what he is going to be doing,’ Afobe said.
‘We have convos all the time and he just wants to play week in week out and take it month by month and see what happens at the end of the season.
‘The main thing for him is about getting his confidence back and staying injury free.
‘He is working hard every day, he is a top professional, and he has brought some life into the squad.
‘Not just on the pitch but on the training ground he is quite loud and quite funny and it shows how far Bournemouth have come bringing these sorts of players to the club and hopefully we can keep progressing and getting better.’
