Jack WIlshere is continuing talks with Arsenal, but he has a host of offers to leave The Emirates this summer.
The midfielder, who was a surprise omission from England’s World Cup squad, is out-of-contract and the 26-year-old can leave on a free transfer.
The Gunners want him to stay but are not prepared to maintain his current salary of £120,000-a-week – they instead are offering him around £90,000 and new coach Unai Emery is happy to keep him.
Wilshere is now contemplating his options and post on his social media, suggested that he was deciding whether to end his Arsenal career or not.
This is what @JackWilshere posted on Instagram Story last night.

A number of foreign clubs are showing an interest, both Milan clubs – AC and Inter, as well as Juventus are all prepared to take him to Serie A – whilst former Chelsea director Michael Emenalo is ready to offer him a switch to the Principality.
However, the most interest is from home with up to half-a-dozen Premier League club with West Ham leading the chase, but capital rivals Crystal Palace and Watford are also keen, whilst Everton, Newcastle and newly promoted Wolves are understood to be ready to engage in talks.
West Ham are believed to have stepped up their interest in Wilshere, having lost Manuel Lanzini to a serious knee injury, and landing the Arsenal man could help off-set that concern.
Bookmakers firmly believe that West Ham are in the driving seat and Coral make them 5/2 to land him.
“The Hammers are well clear of any other side in our betting and we think that if Wilshere does indeed leave the Gunners at the end of the month his most likely destination is just across the capital to East London,” said Coral’s Harry Aitkenhead.
“We’ve seen Joe Cole and Joe Hart amongst others try and revive their England careers abroad but with limited success and Wilshere seems to be set to remain in the Premier League,” added Aitkenhead.
