Arsenal have been handed some great news with reports emerging that Jack Wilshere is set to accept a new contract offer from the North London club despite being offered a pay cut.

The England international is due to be out of contract at the end of the season and would have been a big loss to Arsenal should he leave on a free transfer.

According to report garnered from the Telegraph, Wilshere look close to finally renewing his contract with Arsenal by putting pen to paper on a reduced wages to reflect his poor recent injury record, with Wilshere set to drop down to earning around £90,000 a week, though with the potential to still go back up to his current £110,000.

Wilshere’s new deal contract would be more positive news for the fans after what turned out to be a reasonably strong January transfer window, with Arsene Wenger doing brilliantly well in replacing Alexis Sanchez, Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan were brought in at the Emirates Stadium, while the Frenchman also managed to tie down star playmaker Mesut Ozil to a new contract.

The England international joining Ozil in extending his stay at the Emirates would be another significant boost for Arsenal as they need to keep what remains of the core of his squad together.

With plenty of recent changes to the team, Arsenal’s stability is important for the Gunners as they start to plan for next season already.

Wilshere has always looked a top class performer when fit, and he’s shown this season that the worst of his injury issues seem to be behind him.

Arsenal lost their Premier League game against Watford and will look to bounce back in the Europa League when they face Red Star Belgrade tomorrow night.

The Gunners are on top of their group after we won our first two games. On the other hand, the Serbian side are second with four points. It still remains to be seen who will come out on top.

As far as Arsene Wenger’s side is concerned, we can expect the French boss to make few changes to the starting XI that started vs the Hornets at the weekend.

German international Mesut Ozil returned from injury and featured in the second half vs Watford. He should get the nod to return to the starting XI tomorrow night.

The former Real Madrid star should partner Walcott in the attack behind Olivier Giroud. In the goal, we can expect Ospina to replace Cech. Arsenal’s B team should be good enough to earn all three points, possible XI provided below.

Inter Milan eyeing Arsenal’s £110,000-a-week star – reports

Serie A giants Inter are considering a move for Theo Walcott as the England forward begins to run down his contract at the Emirates.

Walcott is currently the Gunners longest serving player earning £110,000 per week, having joined the club with a lot of hype around him from Southampton in 2006. Aged just 17, many tipped him to be England’s next big star but Walcott has struggled to find consistency in his decade in north London.

Now 28, Walcott is moving into his final two years of his contract at the Emirates and Italian outlet Calciomercato report that Inter are more than ready to go for him if he is made available in January. Walcott’s move to San Siro would allow winger Antonio Candreva to leave the club, with Chelsea reportedly interested in him.

Inter have reportedly been following the England forward for a while, and are said to be very keen on him. Walcott has for long been a controversial figure amongst Gooners fans, but can boast a respectable enough 107 goals in 388 games.

He would be tasked with helping the former treble winners getting back into Europe, having failed to even reach the Europa League last season after a seventh placed finish as Juventus again strolled to the league title.

However, his only silverware with Arsenal is three FA Cups, with his best goal tally in a season being 21 back in 2012/13. It’s the only time in his career he’s scored 20+ goals in a season in his career, but a move to San Siro would link him up with free scoring captain Mauro Icardi, who already has six goals in seven games this season, following on from 26 in 41 last year.

Arsenal return to action against Watford at the Vicarage Road Stadium on 14 October in the Premier League fixture game week 8 of the season and will be hoping to be included in Arsene Wenger’s lineup against the Hornets.
