When Wenger was again questioned over the future of Wilshere and proposed contract talks, the Arsenal boss said: “We need to sit down with him. Beginning of January, it’s planned. There is no delay. I said we would sort out his situation in December, end of December. I told him we want to meet and sit down with him to talk about the future. That’s what I did.
