Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has admitted he wants to stay at the Emirates.
The 23-year-old midfielder has been linked with a move to Manchester City who are gearing up for a busy summer window.
However, he admits he hasn’t spoken to Arsene Wenger about his future, but claims he wouldn’t agitate for a move like Liverpool ace Raheem Sterling.
“I want Arsenal to want me. So if they didn’t want me, it would hurt,” Wilshere told the Daily Mail.
“It would be strange playing for another club. I went to Bolton on loan and that was strange.
“I feel like I’m ready to play now and that’s not going to change.
“I want to play more minutes before the end of the season and then I’ll have to wait until next season and see what the boss’s plans are for me, for the team.
“I want to play first-team football. I want to play in the Premier League, the Champions League and I want to continue playing for England
“If I’m going to do that, I have to play for my club and put in good performances for my club because there are other English midfielders who are doing that in the Premier League.
“You can’t stop the speculation or do anything about it. I have not spoken to the boss about it at all. He has not mentioned it to me.
“I’ve not mentioned anything to him. At the moment, I need to get back in the team. The speculation about my future started when I was injured. You just want to get back out there and get back to what you love doing and just concentrate on that.”
