I do not really know how much truth there is in the Arsenal transfer rumours suggesting that the reigning Premier League champions Manchester City are going to attempt a transfer swoop for our England international star Jack Wilshere this summer.
But it would make sense in a way for City, who badly need to freshen up their aging squad as well as needing more home grown players to help them comply with the UEFA regulations for the Champions League. It looks like there is going to be a big rebuilding project at the Etihad and a Metro report reckons that our Jack is one of their main transfer targets.
My question is, what do the Arsenal fans think about all this?
Wilshere was once our jewel in the crown, but injury problems and some well publicised off field problems have tarnished his image and some Gooners seem to think he is a bit rubbish these days. So perhaps a nice big cash offer from Man City is just what we need.
I have my doubts though, despite Wilshere having another disappointing injury hit campaign. Before his latest spell on the sidelines, which was caused by a bad tackle and is not more evidence that he is injury prone, Wilshere was starting to remind us of just what a rare talent he has. I would hate to see him doing that for our Premier League rivals, especially the club that has raided our squad more than any other in recent years.
The Gunners are supposedly safe from having to sell our players now and Wilshere is just 23-years old and has plenty of years ahead of him. I understand people saying that Aaron Ramsey is currently the better player but what about when he is injured or out of form. Are we really ready to give up on Wilshere and let him go to Man City?
