Arseblog News can reveal that Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey are close to agreeing new long-term deals with the club.
Both players have been negotiating with the club and it’s believed that their futures will be secured shortly.
Wilshere has just returned from 17 months out with injury and has surprised Arsene Wenger with how quickly he’s found his form.
“I expected him to be back [to his best]next year in February, at his best,” he said. “He looks to be there much earlier than I expected him to be.”
The England midfielder still has two and half years left on his current deal but the club, obviously mindful of recent contract dramas, want to get things sorted sooner rather than later.
Meanwhile, Aaron Ramsey, who has struggled at times this season, especially when played out of position, is also close to a new contract. His previous deal was agreed in June 2010, but with a core of British players at the club, Arsenal want to ensure his future and his potential is realised at the Emirates.
The midfielders are unlikely to be the only players currently in discussions with the club, left back Kieran Gibbs last signed a contract in 2009 and having established himself as first choice left-back, ahead of Andre Santos, could well be next.
