Liverpool prepare tempting offer for Arsenal star as ideal transfer to replace contract rebel

Posted by

Liverpool are reportedly interested in sealing the transfer of Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere as a potential replacement for contract rebel Emre Can.

The Germany international is due to be out of contract with the Reds at the end of the season, in what could be a potentially huge blow to Jurgen Klopp after also losing Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona this January.

Can is another vital member of this Liverpool team, though there’s no doubt the addition of Wilshere could work wonders to solve the team’s issues in that area.

The England international has not always been a regular for the Gunners this term, but has always looked potentially one of the finest midfield players in the country when fully fit.

It’s easy to imagine how Wilshere could suit Liverpool’s style of play, and the Sun claim they’re lining up a tempting offer to the 26-year-old if he does not sign a new deal at the Emirates Stadium.

Could Jack Wilshere follow in the footsteps of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain?

Their report states that the Reds would be willing to offer Wilshere improved wages on what Arsenal are hoping to get him to commit to.

They say Wilshere is currently on £90,000 per week – which Liverpool would match – but that he’d have to take a pay cut to remain at Arsenal.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain made the move from Arsenal to Liverpool in the summer and Wilshere could be another smart signing by Klopp if he can pull it off.

Arsenal also sold Alexis Sanchez, Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott to their rivals this January.
