Arsene Wenger believes that Jack Wilshere will remain at Arsenal amid suggestions of new interest from Serie A outfit Sampdoria, but has warned that the injury-plagued midfielder will have to work hard in order to win back a place in the first team.
However, Wenger - who signed a new two-year deal at the end of last season - reckons the England worldwide will remain at the Emirates Stadium.
After an impressive start for the Cherries, Wilshere was eventually dropped to the bench from March onwards as his form dipped, before the second of broken legs ended his season prematurely in the 4-0 defeat to Tottenham on 15th April.More news: Health bill misses point of insurance
Wenger said: "I think Jack will be with Arsenal next season, yes".
'But once he is ready, when he comes back, he will not be far from practising with the team'.
The England worldwide made 29 Premier League appearances for the Cherries, but his progress was cut short by a fractured leg he suffered in April.
Wilshere has 12 months left to run on his current deal with no agreement over an extension in sight.
