Jack Wilshere is supposedly close to a new Arsenal contract, while Mesut Ozil is linked with an exit, but which player is more important to the future of the club?
With Arsene Wenger set to depart the club after over 20 years in charge, there is plenty of changes expected to be instilled over the coming seasons, and there is much talk of an overhaul of the squad as well as the backroom staff, but there are certain players which are more important than others.
Few will disagree that players like Aaron Ramsey, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Mavropanos are players that need to be kept to help us move forward, but they are not the only players who are important as we look to build for the future, and some would argue that Jack Wilshere is a player who can play a big part.
The midfielder has been at the club since he was eight, and has been earmarked by many as a potential future captain at Arsenal, and his performances this season have been a huge indicator as to how important his presence and ability can be to us post-Wenger.
Another player who could well leave the club in the coming summer is Mesut Ozil, who is linked with a return to Spain with Barcelona. the German is deemed a luxury at times, albeit whilst retaining the ability of a world-class player, but his inability to perform consistently jars many a Gunner all too often.
Wilshere is now believed to be nearing an agreement with Arsenal which will see him sign a new three-year contract, but there is also believed to be offers on the table for him to move elsewhere, with Everton and AC Milan believed to be keen on his signature this summer.
Is Jack the Lad more important to Arsenal following Wenger’s departure? Could another boss find the key to Ozil’s consistency? Whose future is most important to the club?
