Jack Wilshere says that he may have to reconsider his future at Arsenal if Arsene Wenger were to leave the club.

Check out the latest moves in the Premier League at Transfer Central.

Wenger has come under fire for the Gunners' inability to make any significant signings after failing with approaches for Gonzalo Higuain, Wayne Rooney, Luis Suarez and Luiz Gustavo.

The fallout from the 3-1 defeat by Aston Villa last Saturday saw the Arsenal Supporters' Trust declare it would be "inappropriate" for the board to offer him a new contract until the transfer window closes.

Wilshere, however, insists that he might be forced to leave the Emirates Stadium were Wenger to depart.

"I want to win things with Arsenal and I want to be there in the future, but if the boss leaves then things could change," Wilshere told Zapsportz.com. "Arsenal are always in my heart and by signing a deal for the next five years shows my commitment to them and their commitment to me so at the moment everything is good.

"Arsene Wenger has been there for so many years and he's always delivered trophies.

"OK we've had a little dip in the last five or six years, but he's a great manager and people who question his ability are ridiculous. He's qualified for the Champions' League for 16 years so I think he's the right man for the job."
