Wenger confident Wilshere will sign new Arsenal deal

But the boss admits there is no certainty he will return to play in the Premier League again. At home, we've had quite a good season, it looks a little bit odd.

The report added that the Arsenal hierarchy wants Vieira as he is familiar with first-team coaches Steve Bould, Gerry Peyton, Neil Banfield and Jens Lehmann. We are sold out in every single game so I don't know what the problem is at the moment. The Premier League said on Wednesday that more evidence is needed before safe standing can be allowed at top-flight stadiums. "For us it is the biggest priority now", Wenger told a news conference. This weekend is preparation for Thursday.

On Wilshere whose deal runs out at the end of the season, Wenger said: "I can not give you any news". It's absolutely important we maintain that record at home.

"We miss him a lot".

"I never spoke about it many times, as he was not the subject of the day, but we have missed him a lot in our game. He has an offer that is on a long-term contract basically, and I hope that at some stage he will sign it".

Asked if he was still confident Wilshere will stay, Wenger said: "You can reproach me maybe, but I'm always confident".

On replacing Wilshere if the England global fails to sign an extension, Wenger added: "If you think like that, there is no limitations.You want the players to stay and be paid well".

The Gunners, who have no chance of qualifying via the league can still win passage into next season's Champions League if they win Europe's minor event, the first leg of which is scheduled to take place five days after the London derby this Sunday. Click any of these buttons below!
