“If Jack was to join another club he would have to go through a full medical. So this is nothing different from what would happen elsewhere.

“The wages offered reflect a player who has been injured a lot.

“Obviously, if he continues to perform over the long-term then improved terms can be offered at a later date."

Arsenal is preparing for the Saturday’s Premier League clash against Crystal Palace at the Emirate on Saturday before the mouth-watering clash on Wednesday against Chelsea at the Emirate Stadium in the League Cup.
