Jack Wilshere is and probably always will be an idolised player for many fans of Arsenal Football Club. Not because of his off the field antics or of course his injury issues, but rather because of his talent and style of play when fit and even more so his passion for the club. Wilshere is a Gooner through and through and plays with the club’s badge firmly in his heart and mind. Wilshere was touted to be the next Mr Arsenal in the mould of Tony Adams and although things may not quite have gone the right way for the Englishman in recent years, I think there’s still a fight for Wilshere at Arsenal.
Wilshere however may no longer agree that there is room for him at Arsenal, because despite previously stating that he is willing to fight for his place in the team, he has also said in recent weeks and months that he isn’t thinking about his future in North London at the moment. Wilshere is currently focused on his current side, AFC Bournemouth, whom he is on loan with until the end of the season. So far Wilshere’s made quite an impression on the South Coast, although many do expect him to return to North London at the end of the season.
According to today’s papers however, Wilshere continues to attract many suitors in case his future at Arsenal is up. The Mirror is reporting that Italian side AC MILAN are currently considering making a move for the midfielder next summer, after interest in the Englishman rose due to a spur of reports in the Italian media. AC Milan, whom are very much former European Giants rather than a current European superclub, still prove favourable to many and Wilshere could set his mind on the move, if he feels his time at Arsenal is over. Wilshere has already admitted that he may have to move on from the Gunners for the sake of his career, although I’m sure he will find it difficult to leave the club that he clearly holds close to his heart.
Would Wilshere consider a move abroad? Manchester City’s England international goalkeeper Joe Hart is currently out in Italy on loan at Torino, but it is uncommon for many English players to play abroad. In my opinion, with Cazorla getting older and players never managing to stay fit for the entire season, I do think Wilshere has a chance of regaining his place at Arsenal. He just needs to prove his quality and fitness to the club first, before he is given another chance.
