Jack Wilshere has reportedly demanded assurances over playing time from new head coach Unai Emery before signing any new Arsenal contract (via The Telegraph).
With the appointment of Unai Emery, the incoming transfer business and speculation surrounding Aaron Ramsey, the future of Jack Wilshere has somewhat been forgotten.
The Englishman’s current Arsenal deal expires at the end of the month and there is reportedly a three-year contract worth £100,000 per week on the table for him to sign.
The 26-year-old has been at the club since the age of nine but injuries have haunted Wilshere throughout his career.
There was growing speculation that he would look to leave the club this summer however, reports now suggest that Wilshere is ready to stay – on one condition.
The Telegraph is claiming that Wilshere will demand assurances over playing time from new head coach Unai Emery when the pair meets in the next few days.

It’s unclear what will happen next. Arsenal are already in the market for another central midfielder and with Aaron Ramsey reportedly so crucial to Unai Emery’s plans, it’s doubtful how much Wilshere will actually play. Injuries have certainly held the midfielder back and perhaps it is time for Jack Wilshere – and Arsenal to move on.
