Wilshere set to sign new deal with Arsenal

December 16, 2012

England midfielder Jack Wilshere is set to sign a new deal with Arsenal, tying himself to a Premier League club that has lost a host of key players in recent years.

Wilshere says ''I am talking to the club and I probably will be committing my future to the club in the next couple of weeks.''

Arsenal has lost Robin van Persie, Cesc Fabregas, Samir Nasri, Gael Clichy and Alex Song - among others - over the past two summers, while Theo Walcott could leave in June after failing to agree a new contract with the club.

Arsene Wenger's team began this weekend in seventh place in the Premier League after a lackluster start to the season.


However, Wilshere says ''we can get back to being the force we were.''
