Jack Wilshere is reportedly set to stay at Arsenal after agreeing on a new four-year contract which will keep him at the club until 2022 (via The Mirror).
It’s a story which has been rumbling on for months but it seems that the future of Jack Wilshere will soon be resolved.
Reports suggest that Wilshere is set to put an end to the speculation linking him with an exit and sign a new four-year contract at the Emirates.
The offer will represent a lower weekly wage for Wilshere but will provide more incentives for playing regularly.
The midfielder’s current deal is set to expire at the end of the season and the player has been in talks with the club for several months.
There was a feeling that Wilshere’s future could be linked to that of Arsene Wenger’s, the manager who brought him into the team at a young age but will be leaving the club in the summer.

Wenger spoke yesterday of how he did not expect that to be the case and it seems that he has been proven correct. Jack Wilshere is obviously a talented player and could well benefit from new management.
