The 27-year-old Wales international midfielder is out of contract with the Gunners at the end of the season, and is set to leave the club as they withdrew their last contract offer to him after months of negotiations.

Since then he has been impressive off the bench, coming on at half time to play a huge part the Gunners North London derby win last week which earned him a start against Manchester United on Wednesday night where he wore the captain’s armband until he was forced off with an injury.

In total he has scored twice and laid 6 assists in 18 appearances in all competitions, and is currently the club’s top assistant in the league.

However, Adams who was formerly an Arsenal captain is not bought by his current level of performance.

He’s trying to get himself the best club possible, isn’t he? It’s a bit of a weird situation that.”

He has been linked to a number of clubs including Liverpool, Barcelona and AC Milan. He might also make a move in January if some of those interests are followed up.
