Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere is set to commit his peak years to the club by signing a new contract worth around £90,000-a-week.

The midfielder’s enjoyed an injury-free season at the Emirates and has produced his best form for the club since 2011.

Wilshere, 25, is out of contract at the end of the season but Arsene Wenger has always maintained he wants the England international to stay.

One reason why Wilshere’s yet to sign a deal is that Arsenal want him to accept a lower basic salary that could topple his current wage with incentives such as appearances and goals.

Arsenal believe it’s correct that a player with Wilshere’s injury record should be taken into account during negotiations and Wenger says the midfielder is set to stay.

‘We try to make progress and I told you that many times for [Mesut] Ozil,’ said Wenger.

‘I’m positive because I want him to stay. I do the maximum I can to make him happy.’
