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.
Sampdoria have approached Arsenal with a €7m (£6.2m) bid for midfielder Jack Wilshere, according to the words of Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio.
The Gunners have reportedly rejected the offer and are requesting €10m (£8.85m) for the England international.
Wilshere, aged 25, is in the final year of his contract with the Gunners and has fallen down the pecking order at the Emirates Stadium having spent the previous season on loan at Bournemouth.
His time at the Vitality Stadium was cut short by the injury problems that have afflicted his career to date when he sustained a fracture to his leg against Tottenham Hotspur in April.
Despite his contract issues and injury crisis, the £8.85m fee seems a bit ridiculous amount to pay for the England international with 34 caps.
Wilshere came through the ranks at Arsenal. He joined the club as a nine-year-old in 2001 after a short spell at Luton Town. He made his first team debut aged 16 in September 2008 and has since made 159 appearances across all competitions.
