It is understood that the player and club are in discussions together over a new deal but nothing has been formally agreed and signed as of yet, with Wilshere just a one of a number of first-team players whose futures have not been sorted out.
Aaron Ramsey is another, with the Welshman’s contract expiring next summer, meaning the club are left with the decision of whether to sell him on the cheap this summer or not, should he refuse a new deal.
It has been reported that Ramsey is central to Emery’s plans, although he refused to comment on that, Wilshere, or any individual player when he was unveiled on Wednesday afternoon.
“I want today to speak the team globally,” he said. “I don't want to speak individually of players because all the meetings with Ivan, Raul, Sven, this team is big.”
He did however hint at the prospect of bringing in new player, with the likes of Santi Cazorla and Per Mertesacker already having left the club at the end of the season, with more sure to follow.
“We think we need change, a little things. A little players,” he said. “Today I want to work and want to speak globally for the squad.”
