The injury-prone midfielder had found himself down the pecking order with the north London club after a series of niggling injuries, and was believed to be fighting for his future as a result.

But after being shipped out on a temporary deal to the Cherries, Wilshere’s displays at the heart of Eddie Howe’s midfield have led to the Gunners preparing a new deal to keep him at the Emirates.

Asked about Wilshere’s future on Friday, Arsene Wenger revealed that Arsenal will offer the 24-year-old a new, extended contract at the end of the season.

“Yes of course [we will offer him a new deal],” he told The London Evening Standard. “At the moment, I leave him to deal with his manager.

“Every week I ask, ‘How did he play?’, I read the reports and when I can see highlights or watch him on television, I will watch him. I’m happy that he hasn’t had any injuries since he left us.”

With Bournemouth set to face off against his parent club this weekend, Wilshere will be forced to sit out the game under the terms of his loan deal, but Wenger insisted that he’d seen enough of his time on the south coast to warrant praise.

“I’m happy he is developing well and it was a good decision to go to Bournemouth as he gets regular football,” he added. “The observations I am getting is that he is getting stronger every week and that is what he needed. I am happy he has not had any injuries.

“When a player like Jack is in top form, you miss him always. We want to win games and the solution is to focus on the offensive performance and be tight at the back rather than expect any weakness from Bournemouth.”
