Arsenal have offered Jack Wilshere more than £100,000 a week in a late bid to keep him at the Emirates Stadium next season.
The midfielder’s current deal is set to expire at the end of the campaign, but The Daily Mirror claim that Wilshere has now received an offer of improved terms.
But with Everton and Wolves both willing to offer Wilshere in excess of that amount, Arsenal have tried to tie down the England man.
Wilshere currently earns over £125,000 a week in total, with the Gunners’ latest offer around the same amount.
Wilshere is keen to remain at the club he joined as a kid in 2001, even though his mentor, Arsene Wenger, will be leaving at the end of the season.
Italian giants Juventus and AC Milan are also said to be monitoring his situation, with Wilshere becoming a free agent on July 1 if he doesn’t pen a new deal.
Arsenal are keen to keep the midfielder after watching him become a key member of Wenger’s side over the course of the campaign.
He is expected to start in Thursday’s Europa League semi-final second leg against Atletico Madrid after being rested for last weekend’s defeat at Manchester United.
