It was a bit of a shock to find out that Arsene Wenger had given his blessing for Jack Wilshere to move away from Arsenal this season, considering that the Frenchman considers him to be a brilliant midfield general when he’s fit.
But now that the Gunners have a veritable goldmine of top midfielders to choose from this season, it would appear that Wenger has decided that it would be best for the Englishman to go and find another club to play on a regular basis during this campaign.
Yesterday it was thought that Wilshere would just move over to the South side of the Thames to join Crystal Palace and he was short odds on to move to Selhurst Park, but today there has been a flood of money on Jack to move to Bournemouth instead. The Cherries are now as low as 1/2 to secure Wilshere and Palace have been moved out to 6/4, with all other clubs, including AC Milan and Roma having been pushed out to 25/1.
Arsene Wenger has had a few run-ins with the Palace manager Alan Pardew and is not his favourite chum, but Eddie Howe has got Bournemouth playing some nice attacking football and has brought them up from League One to the Premier League in just threeseasons. I am sure Wilshere would be a great addition to help him build on his 16th position lastseason and get themselves established in the top tier.
Would you prefer Jack to move to Bournemouth or Palace?
