New Arsenal contract on the table for Jack Wilshere

The BBC is reporting that Arsenal have offered Jack Wilshere a new contract which would see the Englishman receive a weekly wage drop.

The England worldwide started the season as a a back-up player utilised in the Europa League and the League Cup in the current campaign.

It turns out the England global has been offered less money than his current deal but it is heavily incentivised, according to BBC reporter Ian Dennis.

The 26-year-old's contract expires in the summer and there is speculation over whether or not he will sign a new deal or leave as a free transfer in the summer.

The report also claims that the midfielder must pass a full medical.

Should Wilshere be able to do so, it seems unlikely that he will not be offered an extension, as the midfielder's current run of red-hot form has lead to some fans calling for him to rejoin the England setup.

Wilshere was described by Gary Neville on Monday night as "best English midfield player by a street".

Wilshere is one of England's most talented players but injuries have plagued his career - but if he remains fit, it will be hard for Southgate not to pick creative midfielder.

"He takes the ball on the half-turn and he's the only English central midfield player [like that]".
