Jack Wilshere is inside the final six months of his playing contract at present, and has so far failed to agree terms with Arsenal over an extension.
The midfielder has impressed this season, showing true grit, determination and fight as he tries to prove his fitness.
The reports recently are claiming that Jack has been offered reduced weekly terms, with improved appearance bonuses in order to protect the club from the England international’s proneness to injury, and the star looks unwilling to agree to such terms.
Everton boss Sam Allardyce is now moving coy in attempting to ignore questions about his interest in the midfielder’s signature, before adding that he is a fan of the player.
“I can’t comment on that, you’re not supposed to be talking about that,” he said.
“I’ve always admired him, oh yes.”
“I’ve seen a big difference in Jack Wilshere recently, in his frame, in his body,” he added.
“He looks like he has really got the bit between his teeth.
“He looks a lot fitter than he was and he is leaner in his face.
“He looks like he’s had a real go off the field, with his diet and extra training, to overcome his injury problems and prove what a great player he is.
“Hopefully if he is over his problems, whether it’s Arsenal or another club, we all hope he has a long career ahead of him.”
Will Jack quit the club if he isn’t offered a fair wage? Has Wilshere dispelled some of the doubt over his fitness this term? Would Everton be a good fit for him?
