Jack Wilshere has hinted at a contract extension with Arsenal in a reflective social media post.
The England star is yet to put pen to paper on a new deal, but talks are expected to have commenced after Arsene Wenger confirmed they would begin negotiations in December.
The 25 year-old is out of contract at the end of the season and would leave for free should he fail to sign a new deal.
However, in a gushing instagram post, Wilshere claims he ‘never stopped dreaming’ of playing for Arsenal during his loan move to Bournemouth last season.
In an emotional post, the playmaker said: “So this time about a year ago, I was a Bournemouth player sitting in the stands at the Vitality watching AFCB v AFC wondering if I would ever play for Arsenal in the Premier League again.
“After another setback, I never stopped dreaming and believing.
