Juventus have enquired about the possibility of signing Jack Wilshere at the end of the season.
Wilshere’s contract expires at the end of the season and talks to renew his contract are already underway.
However, Arsenal are yet to find an agreement with the midfielder, meaning he’s still up for grabs.
Wilshere is free to enter into talks with his suitors but he apparently wants to remain at Arsenal. Despite his desire to stay, that hasn’t stopped suitors from indicating their interest in signing him.
According to the Mirror Juventus are now lookong to take advantage of the situation.
However, the Italians are set to be disappointed as Wilshere only wants to remain at the Emirates.
An agreement has been difficult to reach because Arsenal are offering the midfielder a £20,000 pay cut on his weekly wages which is currently £110,000 per week. Both parties are expected to reach an agreement before the end of the season anyway.
Arsenal are trying to be cautious with Wilshere because of his injury record and that’s the only logical reason that I think the club is offering him a new contract on a reduced terms.
Quality wise, he deserves to be one of the best paid at the club but offering him a huge pay check may be risky if we have to move him on.
Nevertheless, Arsenal can’t afford to lose him this summer, it would be a big blow to lose a player who is a perfect example of the club’s history and tradition.
