Jack Wilshere intends to hold talks with new Arsenal manager Unai Emery over his role at the club before making a final decision in regards to his future, reports the Evening Standard
The England international’s contract with the Gunners is set to expire at the end of this month after having failed to agree on a new deal over the past year.
But Arsenal remain keen to retain Wilshere and have reportedly offered him an improved deal in order to secure his future at the Emirates.
While the 26-year-old would prefer to remain at the London club, he first intends to hold talks with new boss Emery to discuss his plans for next season and to better understand how he fits into them.
The former Paris Saint-Germain coach has already begun making changes at Arsenal and recently signed Stephan Lichtsteiner from Juventus on a free transfer.
Emery intends to overhaul the club’s midfield options this summer and has reportedly met with Manchester United’s Marouane Fellaini and intends to build his midfield around Aaron Ramsey.
This has left Wilshere concerned and his future at Arsenal will very likely be concluded soon with the final outcome hinging on whether Emery can guarantee him a regular starting spot.
