Lampard urges Wilshere to use Europa League to win new Arsenal deal

Chelsea legend Frank Lampard is convinced Jack Wilshere can yet win a new deal with Arsenal.

Lampard wrote for the London Evening Standard: "The Europa League is a great opportunity for Jack Wilshere to show why he should get a new contract at Arsenal.

"With the difficult schedule of Thursday-Sunday games, Arsene Wenger will rotate a lot more - and that should mean more appearances for Jack.

"There have been positive signs already. He was very impressive as a substitute against Cologne, then against Doncaster last week, so he will surely play a part at Bate Borisov on Thursday.

"Everyone knows his quality, he's just had a very difficult time with injuries. There is nothing worse for a player mentally and physically to keep having these setbacks."
