Jack Wilshere plans to negotiate with Arsenal
Wilshere, 29, plans to hold talks with Arsenal after seeing Arteta say the doors are always open to a familiar face at Emirates Stadium.
What did Arteta say about Jack Wilshere?
The Gunners manager offered this olive branch to his former teammate last week after seeing the midfielder, who has 34 England caps to his name, could not find a new club. Jack Wilshere has been a free agent since reaching the end of his contract at Bournemouth over the summer, with Arsenal happy to let him train with them as he looks for another opportunity. Arteta, who has spent five years playing alongside Jack Wilshere, said that Wilshere is the one he knows with, who he shared the dressing room with, the one who is so loved throughout the club with every person here and their doors are always open.
Jack Wilshere spoke about Arteta’s offer
Wilshere, 29, who left the Gunners for West Ham in 2018 but has continued to fight for form and fitness since then, spoke about Mikel Arteta’s offer that he spent most of his life at that club, gave a lot to that club. Hearing the manager – with whom Jack Wilshere played, with whom he had a good relationship, he really enjoyed playing with him, sharing the dressing room with him – hearing him go out and saying that the door is always open is nice. Pressed whether he would accept the invitation, Jack Wilshere added that it could only help him. Being around good players, training with world-class players, and just being in a team environment is what interests him. Jack Wilshere is sure to talk to someone at the club over the next few days.
Jack Wilshere’s Arsenal achievement
Joining the Arsenal academy system at the age of nine, Jack went through the ranks to make his senior debut in September 2008. Jack Wilshere went on to host 197 appearances for Arsenal, scoring 14 goals, but injuries have become all too common for the playmaker’s actions and his progress has stalled as a result. As Arsenal’s Player of the Year and winner of the 2011 PFA Young Player of the Year award, he retired as a free agent in the summer of 2018. The spark failed to rediscover at West Ham or Bournemouth, leaving Jack to scratch for a new club in the present. He spent a short training period with Como in August, but returned to England as Serie B sides can only sign players from other non-EU Italian clubs.
