Arsenal have held talks with Jack Wilshere regarding a new deal despite the England international joining Bournemouth on a season-long loan according to The Sun.
The 24-year-old made a surprise move to the Cherries on transfer deadline day in the search of first team football.
Per-the-source, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is keen to tie down Wilshere for a further three years. The England international has just two seasons remaining on his current deal with the Gunners.
The report goes onto say that Wilshere had a ‘heart-to-heart’ phone conversation with Arsene Wenger last Monday.
Wilshere’s career has been blighted by injuries, which have restricted him to just 159 appearances in eight years for the North London based outfit.
Last season, Wilshere missed the majority of the Gunners campaign due to an injury and made just three appearances. However, he was still called up for the Euro 2016 squad by former manager Roy Hodgson.
