Jack Wilshere has issued an ultimatum to Arsenal to match his demands or lose him as a free agent, reports claim.

The midfielder was furious at club chiefs attempting to make him take a pay cut on his £120,000-a-week deal and after a recent run of good form he believes he has fully justified that salary.

Arsenal officials wanted the 26-year-old to take a 25% wage cut – an offer Wilshere promptly shut down.

However, he is willing to give them one last chance to match his demands, according to the Sun.

After proving his fitness and ability, Wilshere believes Arsenal should offer him a new deal at the same value as his last and in an ideal scenario, he would stay with the club.

If they fail to match his current wage packet, though, he will move on. Juventus and AC Milan are both keen to sign him, while Everton and West Ham are willing to offer him more than his £120,000-a-week deal.

With other offers on the table, Wilshere has told the club to put up or shut up and he will leave as a free agent if they do not cough up the cash.
