According to Arteta, the doors of the Arsenal are always open for Jack Wilshere
Arteta insisted that Arsenal’s doors are always open to the 29-year-old Wilshere as he continues his search for a new club.
What did Arteta say about Jack Wilshere?
Jack Wilshere originally began his career at Arsenal in 2008, becoming one of the most talented young midfielders of his generation under Wenger. However, injuries kept him from reaching his full potential and he left the club in 2018 before continuing to play in the unreachable periods at West Ham and Bournemouth, but Mikel Arteta hinted that he would be welcoming back to Emirates Stadium.
Jack Wilshere is currently available as a free transfer, and the Arsenal boss offered the 29-year-old a potential Olive Branch who built a good relationship with him as a North London player between 2011 and 2016. Asked if he could invite the former England international to train with his squad, Mikel Arteta said at a press conference on Thursday that Jack Wilshere is the one with whom he knows Arteta has shared a dressing room. Someone who loves the club so much with every person here and their doors are always open.
A little about Jack Wilshere
Jack Wilshere only made 198 appearances in all competitions during his ten-year stint at Arsenal, but won two FA Cups and the Public Shield. Wilshere also managed to score 14 goals, setting another 30 for his teammates, and won 34 goals for England when at his peak.
Jack has been associated with a number of English clubs since leaving Bournemouth in June, and the Scottish Rangers have also been credited with his interest in his services during the summer transfer window. However, the seasoned playmaker has yet to find a new employer and has been training with the Serie B Calcio Como outfit to maintain his fitness level.
Calcio Como is unable to sign the 29-year-old due to Serie B clubs not being allowed to acquire non-EU players from outside Italy, but he admitted he hopes to attract interest from Serie A clubs. Jack Wilshere said earlier this month that he would gladly join the Italian club right away if given the chance. The experience at Como is positive, so Jack thinks he would settle down quickly.
