The 26-year-old spoke to reporters after Arsenal's 2-0 win over AC Milan in the Europa League and said that a new deal looks further away that it did a few weeks ago. The England international's future was in major doubt after he was loaned out to Bournemouth last season, but having made 29 appearances for the London side this term, it certainly appears that he's back to being considered an important piece by Arsene Wenger.
Wilshere, though, has suggested that discussions have ground to a halt amid reports that the Gunners are asking him to take a pay cut, with no compromise in sight at present.
Asked about the intense criticism Arsenal's players have received following those four defeats, to Ostersunds FK, Manchester City (twice) and Brighton, Wilshere said: "If anyone tells you that you haven't got anything to prove in football, they're wrong. We are no closer to sorting anything out", The Telegraph quotes Wilshere as saying.
Wilshere has been one of the shining lights in an otherwise hugely disappointing season for Arsenal.
And Wilshere insisted that Arsenal would continue to fight for the top four even with a gap developing between them and the Champions League places.
"We have got another game on Sunday and then next week, the job in this competition is not done yet...this is AC Milan".
That victory has the Gunners in a strong position to reach the quarter-finals of the Europa League, but once again they are taking nothing for granted.
"We're not through yet. We have to finish it off and then you can get anyone in the draw".
