The Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are still talking about Jack Wilshere’s display last Thursday.
In a tricky fixture away at Red Star Belgrade, Arsenal fielded a second-string XI.
The game looked to be heading for a 0-0 draw until a moment of magic by Jack Wilshere allowed the Gunners to score.
With few options available to him, the England international squeezed his way between two defenders, knocked it to Theo Walcott, received the return pass and audaciously chipped it back to Walcott, who headed across goal for Olivier Giroud to acrobatically hook home.
This was the latest top performance from Wilshere, who has really stepped up his game this season after returning from yet another injury setback.
Now, according to The Daily Mail, Jack Wilshere is set to be rewarded with a new contract at The Emirates Stadium.
Wilshere’s current deal expires in the summer and a number of clubs such as West Ham and Sampdoria were looking at him last summer.
However, Arsenal are now set to thrash out talks with his representatives as they seek to sort his future out promptly.
While news is good with regards to Wilshere’s future, there are still no breakthroughs in talks with Mesut Ozil or Alexis Sanchez.
