If ever a player was taking a chance running down his contract it's Jack Wilshere with his injury history.
Obviously I hope it doesn't happen and he has a great world cup and career where ever it is but what if he picks up another long term injury and is out of contract?
Obviously the bloke ain't skint and I'm sure he could walk away from football tomorrow and be financially secure but it would be extremely tough out of contract and out on his own if he did pick up another bad one.

There’s an offer on the table I think g62. So I don’t think he’s taking a risk.

Firstly, as you state he probably has already accumulated considerable wealth and may have insurance against career-threatening injury.
I believe our offer was poorly constructed as it is insulting to offer a lower basic wage to a top player in his mid-20's.
His injuries have generally been impact injuries, which have healed, opposed to recurringsoft tissue injuries. He looks one of our best players and a suitable salary should be offered and we should try and tie up Ramsey as well. If we were to lose the pair, plus Welbeck and Bellerin over the summer, the rebuilding of our threadbare squad will be even more difficult.

Good replys lads and like you say RG we are not so flush with talent that we can let any of our best players go willingly.
Personally I think Belerin is gone in his head already and Aaron pretty much the same unless something was to happen at Arsenal to change his mind like a new manager arriving.
What's Aaron 27? Time to challenge for top prizes is running out for him.
Danny? No disrespect but where would he go? Would any of the clubs above us want him, it's us or possibly Everton if they are interested in him other than that it's a step backwards for Danny if he leaves.

I just don’t understand why footballers get so much stick for injurys! I can understand prospective clubs been cautious when buying a player with a lengthy injury record but at the end of the day they are employees and they have been injured at work. If you got injured whilst carrying out your job and your company said you can return to work but we are going to pay you less then you wouldn’t be very happy. Now I don’t understand the terms of employment and how these things work in football. Are footballers paye or self employed? Or something else? Should imagine ed01 will have the answer.

21 Mar 2018 16:25:05
I think all said players are keen to leave because either they want a change of manager or because of the last window and ozil, fancy a big pay rise. From my point of view, are they worth the extra? Would we be better freshening up manager and players?
For me its a big YES to the latter.

21 Mar 2018 16:25:30
Sorry I accidentally wiped my reply just as I clicked submit. Footballers are PAYE.

As Ed says Sanogo footballers are employees but on fixed terms of employment so when there contract is up both parties are free to renew or end the relationship or negotiate higher or lower wages ect.
If an employee was off sick repeatedly at any every day company the company would understandably be cautious when deciding whether to renew and on what terms and players like all employees will always consider their options too once a contract is coming to an end.

Cheers ed. G62 there’s a difference between calling in sickies and been injured whilst at work. If they are then that’s why they get paid. most Fans always say that it’s a joke that they get paid when certain players are on the treatment table a lot . I’m sure jack wants to stay and is playing hard ball because I can tell you there will be clubs interested in him and will have a bigger wage packet than we have offered ready if the get him on a free. I can see Man City or pep been very interested in him. Jack would improve vastly under pep.

{Ed001's Note - insurance usually covers wages while a player is injured, not the clubs.}

21 Mar 2018 17:38:21
Sanogo I don't disagree Jack would benefit from working with Pep and on a free he would be an asset to city even if on a lower wage and shorter contract that had he never had injury problems. Yes Jack was injured at work but his obligation to us and us to him is coming to an end and if Jack had never been injured and was England's first name on the team sheet and in the running for premier league player of the year I'm sure he'd be wanting something close to Mesut wages to stay but that's not how it is mate.
He wants to think himself lucky for Mr Bosman because without him
Arsenal could offer Jack whatever they wanted and he'd have two options take it or retire.
I know you really like Jack Sanago mate but the club can't ignore his injury record completely that would be negligent but mind you the club have set a president with Caz and co in the past on that score.

21 Mar 2018 17:50:22
The club won’t let him go and jack doesn’t want to go! It will get sorted out I’m sure.
