Despite making his first Premier League start of the season on Wednesday, Jack Wilshere is still unsure if he is going to sign a new contract with Arsenal.
Wilshere played the full 90 minutes against a 0-0 draw at West Ham as he was named in the Gunners starting XI for a league game for the first time in 577 days.
The England midfielder has been linked with European clubs Betis and Sampdoria and West Ham manager David Moyes has also shown interest on him.
Wilshere is also one of the three players in Arsenal with a contract that will expire by the end of the season. While, the midfielder did express his desires to extend his stay with the club, but Arsene Wenger has not provided him with any renewal talks at the moment.
“No, there’s no update on the contract – we’re in the same position as we were two weeks ago. There’s not really a date in the diary,” Wilshere said.
“I’ve only read what he’s [Wenger] said in the media. I’ve just played my first game in the Premier League, I’m concentrating on staying fit and staying in this team.
“That will look after itself. When it’s the right time to talk about it, I’m sure the boss will call me and we’ll have a chat.
“There’s another game on Saturday, we’ll see what the boss does, and at the moment that’s all I’m focused on. This time of the year is probably the most important time of the season.”
“I should have hit the target, there’s no denying that and on another day I probably would have if it was on my left,” Wilshere told Arsenal Player. “But it happened really quickly and it fell to my right and I swung at it and unfortunately didn’t catch it right.
“But I felt good out there, I have been waiting for that chance for a while. I have played a few games in the Europa League and the EFL Cup and I’ve been desperate to play. I was happy to get the start and I thought I did alright.
“The Premier League is a bit different, a bit quicker than the Europa League or EFL Cup so it took some getting used to but I felt good, I felt free, I felt my touch was good and I linked up with the players well but there’s obviously more to come.”
