Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere, does not want to see Theo Walcott quit the Emirates Stadium.

The midfielder has seen the likes of Cesc Fabregas, Samir Nasri, Robin van Persie and Alex Song all depart in the past 18 months and he hopes history doesn’t repeat itself with the England forward.

“He is an English lad and great to have around the dressing room,” the midfielder said.

“But that is up to him, the boss and the board. They are going to do whatever they are going to do. I hope he signs.

“We all know what Theo brings to the team. He has got pace, he can go behind and his movement and timing of the runs is probably the best around.

“He play anywhere - up front, right, left, central.

“He wants to play down the middle, so I think he will get his chance - he will just have to be patient.”
