Do Arsenal already have the perfect Cazorla replacement?

Santi Cazorla’s Arsenal contract is set to run out at the end of the season and although it is likely be renewed, so who could replace him as boss of our build up play whe Santi retires?

The creative spark that the Spaniard possesses is incredibly rare and you would think he would be extremely hard to replace, but there just may be one forgotten man who may be ready to step up.

Jack Wilshere was sent out on loan to Bournemouth this summer following a string of frustrating seasons spent mostly on the sidelines, and has managed to play more in the past four months with the Cherries than he had done in his two previous years with us.

Jack has always been hailed as one who was great at seeing a forward pass, and has been highly rated by all his coaches for his quick thinking and eye for a ball, and had he stayed fit this whole time, there is little doubt in my mind that he would still be starring for our first-team on a regular basis.

We must all remember that world class display against Barcelona in 2011, as does Spain and Barcelona legend Xavi who is regularly talking out in the press about our midfielder, in which he run the Barca midfielders ragged over the two fixtures. In London, they had no answer for him, if they come in close, the ball seemed to stick to his feet and he managed to manoeuvre his way out, and if they stood off, his turn of pace saw him blitz past them, not to mention his creative spark that flowed as he oozed confidence out.

He has had many struggles since, but I’m certainly excited to see Jack the Lad back fit again, and cant wait for him to get back to his best in an Arsenal shirt.

Do you agree that Jack Wilshere can return and take over from Santi as our midfield dynamo?

    It’ll be tough breaking into this Arsenal midfield, even for Jack. Xhaka and Coquelin are the boss’s first choice now, and if they continue to improve it’ll be hard!

    I can almost guarantee he will be injured once he puts on the red and white.

    Although Jack’s performances for us in previous seasons have been rather average, he is still relatively young and his form when he was at the top was amazing. Like the article says, the performances he put in against Barcelona were exceptional (not many players in the world can say that they outplayed the Barcelona midfield). Couple this with his form for Bournemouth (which will add confidence), he could be on his way to return to previous form next season. Hopefully coupling form and talent will mean that he could flourish in Cazorla’s role.

    Saying all that, we loaned him for a reason and that is due to our already over-populated midfield. We might find ourselves in a position where we have to sell/loan players again.

    We all know he is capable, but personally if he stays injury free all season then we should sell him in the summer for whatever we can get.
    It is not worth the risk of bringing him back and getting injured again. We don’t need another Diaby situation that goes on for years.
    Talking about that. How come Theo Walcott hasn’t got injured yet?

      he’ll most likely be part of the the annual injury crisis that starts in late January, and runs to mid-March, don’t worry.

    Once Jack becomes more disciplined he can reach his potential, we all know he has it in him but his lack of discipline and sometimes confidence hold him back.

    Stop kidding yourselves. Jack is not the perfect replacement for Santi. I agree whole heartedly with G-Rude. Sell him asap…

    Lmao, we’re still putting all our faith on Wilshere for no reason. Because he had one good season as a 17 year old. He’s playing well for Bournemouth but that’s not evidence he’ll play even better for us, and we need that from him too. And let’s not even pretend for a moment his injury problems are behind us. Knowing Wenger though we will start next season with just Wilshere and Santi in that position, both will get injured. And yes, Arsene is obviously not going to leave yet, that’s not even a viable question
