The Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have been very impressed with the form of Jack Wilshere this season. The Englishman has been sensational in the middle of the park for the Gunners, offering a driving, creative edge in a midfield that has been lacking quality in recent months.
It will come as no surprise, then, to learn that Arsene Wenger wants him to be at the club next season. His current contract expires at the end of the campaign, but according to Sky Sports News, Wenger has revealed that talks are underway regarding a new deal and that he wants him to agree fresh terms.

Be it through driving runs or impressive passes, Wilshere has been the creative force of the Arsenal first team since returning to regular action at the Emirates.
Indeed, at some points it has looked like he has been the only player that is trying, and that has endeared him to the Arsenal faithful.
It’s fair to say that this news has gone down well in the Transfer Tavern, with many desperate for the Englishman to sign on sooner, rather than later.
A few months ago, this deal looked far less likely. He was hardly playing, and his consistent injury issues were continuing to plague his Arsenal career.
However, he looks to have – at the moment at least – gotten past the worst of his issues, having featured regularly in recent weeks.
It’s fair to say that he’s been Arsenal’s best player since the turn of the year, and if he can continue that form, he’ll be worth every penny that Arsenal agree to pay him each week.
