Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
Arsenal are reportedly plotting a £28million swoop for Juventus midfielder Miralem Pjanic, according to reports.
The Sun in one of their report claimed the manager Arsene Wenger has personally contacted Pjanic to sound him out about a potential move to Arsenal and has been encouraged by his response.
However, the Old Lady’s are unlikely to let the Bosnian leave in January but Arsenal are planning to test the waters with a bid.
Pjanic, 26, only joined the Turin club from Roma in the summer but has impressed and Arsenal are keen to recruit him.
In order news, Arsene Wenger has confirmed Arsenal have yet to offer Jack Wilshere a new contract, writes John Cross.
We revealed on Christmas Day that Wilshere has been left fearing for his Gunners future as he will have just one year left on his deal when he returns from a season-long loan at Bournemouth in the summer.
Wilshere, 25 , could become a target for the Cherries if they are given encouragement to make the move permanent, while Manchester City are long-term admirers.
The England midfielder, prevented from playing against Arsenal when they visit Bournemouth on Tuesday by Premier League rules, has had no contact with his parent club over a new deal.
Arsenal boss Wenger said he was aware of Wilshere’s impressive form – including his display in Saturday’s 3-0 win at Swansea – but had not started talks over hanging on to the boyhood Gunner long-term.
