Arsenal finally set to open contract talks with Jack Wilshere amid other Premier League interest

Arsenal have finally moved to open contract negotiations with Jack Wilshere.

England midfielder Wilshere, 25, is due to have talks this week as his current deal expires in 2018.

Wilshere is on a season-long loan at Bournemouth and Arsenal will be desperate not to run the risk of letting him leave on a free transfer in 15 months’ time.

They have also moved to open talks with Kieran Gibbs while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is likely to be next on their list as their deals are both up next year.

It remains to be seen whether Wilshere has a long term future at the Emirates, having recently lost his place in the starting line-up at Bournemouth.
