But Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has begged fans to believe him when he says he will tie Wilshere’s future down to the Emirates – like he did with Mesut Ozil.

He said: “We try to make progress and I told you that many times for Ozil. You never believed me.

“I’m positive as I want him to stay. I do the maximum to make him happy.”

Wilshere’s career has been revived since returning to Arsenal after a season on loan at Bournemouth.


Doubts remain over his fitness but he has managed to play 15 Premier League games this term and avoid injuries.

He is desperate to stay and prove his worth.

In December, Wilshere said: “I definitely want to be here.

“I’m enjoying my football and I love playing in the Premier League now and I want to help Arsenal get to where they should be.

“We just have to sort things out and I’m sure that will happen in the next couple of weeks and it will be sorted.”
