The Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have been impressed with Jack Wilshere this season. Having endured a tough few years, suffering injury after injury, the Englishman has kept his head down and been patient for his chance this season, and that’s now working out very well for him.
Wilshere, who is rated at £13.5 million by Transfer Markt, looks fit, he looks ready to play, and Arsene Wenger looks ready to utilise him. He featured in Arsenal’s last Premier League game, and his involvement could continue this weekend against Newcastle.
However, there is one problem with Wilshere’s current situation: his contract expires in the summer. With no new deal on the table as of yet, he’s on a collision course with the exit door, but this is something that most fans don’t want to see, it seems. According to a recent poll ran by our landlord, 67% of Arsenal fans are keen for Wilshere to stay at the Emirates next season and sign a new deal with the club.
It’s no real surprise, to be honest. He’s still a fan favourite in the Transfer Tavern. When he exploded on to the scene as a teenager, he had the world at his feet. Most fans certainly recognise that he still has the talent, but he just hasn’t yet been able to realise it.
With the faith of the club that he loves, alongside a clean bill of health, Wilshere could clearly do big things, and the Arsenal faithful are keen to see his club reward him for that determination.
