Arsene Wenger will decide next month whether Jack Wilshere has earned a new Arsenal contract, giving the club the chance to sell him in January if he has not.
“I said many times that [Wilshere’s future] would be decided in December,” the Gunners boss said. “I wanted to give him six months not to think about that and see where we go.
“I see him more as a player who can affect the game in the final third than a box to box player. I see him more as somebody who has a quick response, quick reactions in the final third and the quality of the pass in the final third.
“He turns well the game forward, he can chip a little ball, he can pass people on the short space. That’s why I think the system suits him well.”
