Assuming that the Arsenal transfer rumours are on the mark, of course, and with the generally reliable Sky Sports reporting it then it looks likely, Arsene Wenger is about to face a serious transfer attack from our Premier League rivals Man City.
The player in question is our England international midfielder Jack Wilshere and even though the 23-year old has not been a regular for the Gunners too often in recent years, it appears that the people at City see him as a very important transfer target for the summer.
They have need of more homegrown players in the squad but they also need players of quality and Arsenal obviously do not want to help them in any way, but is it really that simple? I see comments on this site all the time about Wilshere being over-rated and not needed and even Wenger often prefers other players to Jack, especially now Cazorla is an option for central midfield.
You know the way Arsenal work, spending only what we can afford, so maybe it would be good business to spend the money we would get for Jack, and who knows how much City would pay, and sign a player or two in positions where we are not so strong.
I hate the idea of it all to be honest, but is there an argument that it could actually help Arsenal Football Club?
