Not long ago it appeared that the Arsenal and England international midfield star would be going on loan to Premier League club AFC Bournemouth, after another EPL club Crystal Palace were previously thought to be winning the race for him.
It is certainly good to know, and good for Jack’s own confidence levels, that he is in great demand and usually I would say that in order to get the best out of this loan spell it would be better for him to stay in England, but Wilshere’s case is an odd one and I feel that going abroad might actually suit him better.
According to Sky Sports the Italian Serie A club Roma have now entered the fray and I think this might be the right move for a couple of reasons.
First of all the main reason he is leaving is to gain fitness and form but the reason he has not been playing for Arsenal is all the injury problems. With the English Premier League being widely recognised as the most competitive and toughest around, perhaps Wilshere would have less chance of another damaging injury if he was to play elsewhere.
The other reason is that the Roma squad includes former team mates Thomas Vermaelen and Wojciech Szczesny and the keeper is a very good friend of Jack’s, making it much more likely that he would settle quickly. Do you think he should opt for this move to Roma or stay in the Premier League?
