Should Arsenal sell Jack Wilshere for just £9 million?

When you look at the silly money that has been changing hands in recent years for players, and not just the very best in the football world at that, you could argue that just £9 million for a player with the undoubted ability of the Arsenal and England international star Jack Wilshere is daylight robbery.

That is what the Daily Mail is reporting as the amount that the Italian Serie A club Sampdoria are set to offer the Gunners for the injury plagued 25-year old and although it is nothing compared to some of the transfers we have seen this summer I think we should consider it.

Knowing our luck Jack would then go the rest of his career with no injury problems but good luck to him if he does and at least he would not be playing for a direct rival. Arsenal could do with him off the wage bill to be honest and if we don’t sell him this summer how much first team action do you think he would see?

With Ozil, Ramsey, Xhaka, Iwobi and the young Gunners coming through, as well as the currently recovering Santi Cazorla to fit in, there is already a lot of competition for our midfield places, so should Arsenal just take what we can get for Wilshere and cut our losses?

      One year left on contract, and even last loan spell did not go well with an average EPL club. He got minutes, but not many goals or assists, when used carefully. He will not grow into a top player anyway. Sell him for 9m with buy back option in 2 years, for like 15m, else sell him for 15m

        He clearly doesn’t think for himself, just via his agent, who is thinking more of the money he can make, than what’s best for his client. He hated Pep when he was at Barcelona, he won’t win the CL at Citeh – they are years behind even Juventus who failed this year, and to be fair, if whatever caused the bust up in the team (maybe him) hadn’t happened – we would’ve finished ahead of them, as we should’ve beaten West Brom and Watford, and he won’t lower his wage demands, so Arsenal would be more amenable to selling him abroad – i.e. Bayern, where he might at least have a very small hope of winning the CL. He should really keep his mouth shut, he isn’t doing himself any favours. We should keep him in preference to selling him to another PL club, he will be a year older next year, and it will give us time to adjust, while he will be less potent.

          I agree. We need to sell him abroad. We can’t take the risk of losing him for nothing to our direct rivals when his contract runs out. It looks increasingly unlikely that he will sign any extension. So sell him abroad and use that money to get a replacement. He’s affecting the team’s morale as well. Wenger needs to sort this out first, and Giroud too if he’s really petty and salty about Lacazette. We shouldn’t let all these players affect the overall team morale. We got bigger things to achieve together as a team.

    No ridiculous. Keep loaning him out until hopefully he hits a transfer window at the same time he’s injury free and playing well,(it could happen lol).
    Then sell.
    On his game he’s worth 20 to 25 m easily.

    Talking of selling players sell sanchez but to juve psg or bayern etc for a lower transfer fee than city will offer.
    Also get a similar replacement and sell giroud, today’s foolishness with lacazette was actually probably one tactic to a move. Not celebrating is childish but no major problem but having one player that won’t pass to another on the pitch is insane!
    Get him in the office Wenger abd scald the fool!!

      The problem is, you can see it’s all coming from his agent, who wants the transfer so he can make money. AS has a far higher chance of winning the CL with Bayern, than Citeh, with whom it’s virtually non-existent, yet he won’t lower his wage demands to even make that a possibility. The agent won’t be paid (much), if he stays on with Arsenal either, no matter how much his wage is increased.

    Wilshere is on his last season of his contract and is injured often
    I would say about £15 million seems right

    If there were more than 1 year than i would say £20-25 million

    I have already said enough on SAnchez , hoping the club stop dithering and move him out quickly.

    Wilshere should have been move out from last season when his worth would have been a lot more, i think it would be wise for wilshere to look a less physical league at the moment to play some football, in this league it is highly unlikely he will regain any sort of form which would guarantee success in his future at arsenal. I will go on to say take the 10 million and say thanks.

    The truth is if Wilshere had a storming season at Bournemouth even with his injury clubs would be lining up to sign him..

    He won’t get in to the arsenal team at the moment but there is still potentially a talented player in there..

    The only way for him to resurrect his career is to accept new terms on a lower wage expecting an improvement on his 90kpw is a pipe dream…go to a less physical league (maybe spain) on loan play and try to resurrect his career

    Ask yourself if the £25m was yours would you invest it in a player who is on 90kpw has only made 45 appearances in 3 years…in his best season in recent years played 27 games last season scoring no goals and struggled to keep a starting spot at Bournemouth?..

    Pls guys lets stop being emotional..

    Eddie Howe did want to sign him permanently but said what we wanted was too high but having now spent £20 mil on a player and if the price is low may well be back in for him. He had a good season there and whilst had minimal final ball assists, started many successful moves from farther back as was playing deeper than previous.

    As much as my heart tells me no don’t sell himy head says take the money and run. It’s hard because as a teenager I saw the future off our club in him, Ramsey, and Walcott but they have all turned out to be injury prone and not as good as they looked as youngster’s. Off the 3 I think Ramsey is the only one that still has a spot in the team if he is on form and played in the right position. Wilshire and Walcott need to be sold and proper replacements bought in thier positions .
