Jack Wilshere has reportedly given Arsenal one final chance to match his contract demands.
The England man is out of contract in June and he has held talks over an extension, but as yet no new deal has been thrashed out.
According to The Sun, Arsenal want Wilshere to accept a 25% cut in his £120,000 per week wages, with his nrew deal being heavily incentivised around appearances, but the 26-year-old is not keen on the idea.
After returning from injury and establishing himself back in the first team, Wilshere believes he deserves a new deal on his existing salary.
The report suggests Wilshere, who was loaned to Bournemouth last season, originally told Arsene Wenger he would be leaving in the summer, but now he has given the club a chance to match his demands.
Juventus and AC Milan have both been linked with Wilshere, while Everton and West Ham United are also believed to be monitoring his situation.
Asked, after the 2-0 win Europa League win in Milan earlier this month, whether he had anything to say about his contract wrangle, Wilshere replied: “Not really, no.”
Wenger has said in recent weeks that signing the deal was all down to Wilshere as the club had made their offer.
“Things have changed since then,” replied Wilshere when asked about Wenger’s comments.
“All I can tell you is that we are no closer to sorting anything out.”
