Arsene Wenger is desperate to tie down Jack Wilshere to a new contract and also wants Danny Welbeck to pen fresh terms.
Wilshere, 26, is out of contract at the end of the season with a number of high-profile clubs ready to pounce if he becomes a free agent.
The Gunners have reportedly offered the England international less money than his current deal with more add-ons and bonuses but Wenger just wants the deal.
Wenger said: “That decision doesn’t depend only on me.
“I want him to sign very quickly.
“We are still to make the decision and find the pen somewhere. I’m happy to give him one.”
