“I am not really in any rush, today (Saturday) is actually my last day with my contract at Arsenal, so it’s been a bit of a strange day.

“I have played 10 years as a professional there and had 17 years at the club. We are looking at things and I am keeping myself fit. So if something does come up I am ready to go.”

However, Wilshere insists he is in no rush to make a decision about where he will be playing next season.

He added: “This has been a good opportunity for me to rest and reflect on my life and what I want – I am not going to rush that decision.

“The transfer window finishes early August, so we still have some time and with the World Cup still going on things happen after the World Cup and during.

“Everyone knows what Deadline Day is like, it’s manic and teams start to panic so we will see. I am not putting a deadline on anything.”
