Jack Wilshere: Signed a long-term contract with Arsenal in December

Arsene Wenger's club have infamously failed to win a piece of silverware since the 2005 FA Cup and that wait for success looks set to continue this season.

Robben's Bayern Munich are well placed to dump Arsenal out of the UEFA Champions League last 16 after a first leg win in England on Tuesday.

And the former Chelsea star is unsure how long Wilshere will hang around, as he is quoted as saying in the Daily Star on Sunday: "I don't know if Arsenal can keep him if they are not winning things.

"It's always difficult to judge that about another player.

"But you can see that Wilshere is a very big talent and he is only young still. He's just 21 years old. He will definitely be a big player."

Wilshere signed a new long-term Arsenal contract in December but that has still not stopped speculation about his future.

However, the England international is viewed as a future captain of the Gunners and manager Arsene Wenger has never made any secret about the midfielder's leadership qualities.

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
