Everton join Juventus in race for Arsenal star Jack Wilshere… and will top new Gunners deal offered

EVERTON are ready to go head-to-head with Juventus for Jack Wilshere, according to reports.

The 26-year-old and his representatives have hit a brick wall in talks with Arsenal about extending his stay at the Emirates.

Wilshere, who has forced his way back into the Arsenal side in recent months is a free agent in the summer.

However, the Gunners want the England international to take a pay-cut on his £110,000-a-week contract to stay on.

The midfielder is reluctant to leave North London and his admission that no progress is being made in negotiations has alerted the Toffees, claim the Mirror.

Everton could offer higher wages than Arsenal who want Wilshere to agree to a heavily incentivised deal due to his injury record in recent years.

The Merseysider’s are keen to revamp their midfield and Sam Allardyce has earmarked Wilshere as the man to aid their push for Europe next season.

Italian champions Juve are closely monitoring his situation while they also keep tabs on Liverpool’s contract rebel Emre Can.

The Turin club will need to add to their midfield option if they decide to sell Blaise Matuidi who is being tracked by Manchester United.

Meanwhile, Arsenal face another headache with Aaron Ramsey set the enter the final year of his contract this summer.

They want to keep the Welshman, but may be tempted to cash in if he does not sign a new deal instead of running the risk of losing him for nothing at the end of next season.

Mesut Ozil’s whopping £350,000-a-week deal has raised eyebrows in the dressing room with other top players set to use the German’s bumper pay-hike as a reference point when negotiating fresh terms.
