Arsenal fans are resigned to losing Jack Wilshere this summer, but where could he go?
The England international has been rather downbeat when talking about the Gunners this term, which is a strange stance to come from a player widely considered to be ‘Arsenal through-and-through’.
Wilshere had been tipped to become a long-term captain of our side, but has seemingly fallen out of love with the club, and even refused to acknowledge our sides FA Cup victory last weekend.
During the season, he admitted that he wanted Bournemouth to overcome his parent club, despite being unavailable for the encounter due to FA rules, and even praised rivals Chelsea instead of taking the opportunity to show his allegiance to our side.
The FA Cup snub appears to have been taken heavily with Gunners fans, who are now resigned to losing the former club favourite, and Wenger’s supposed contract will also have made his return all the less likely.
Manchester City have been linked with his signature this summer, but with his new injury highlighting his frailties, and with only one year remaining on Jack’s deal, I find it hard to believe that Arsenal would be able to agree a fee with the Citizens.
Bournemouth have previously claimed that they don’t expect to have a chance of completing a deal to sign him, but that doesn’t mean that they wouldn’t try, with Wilshere believed to have enjoyed working under Eddie Howe this term.
AC Milan and Roma have been linked with a move to sign him over the past 12 months, and he appears to be keen on such a switch, and Serie A may well be his favoured destination to get his career back on track.
Wojciech Szczesny made the switch to the Giallorossi on loan two seasons ago, and seems very happy in Italy, and the pair may well have discussed life abroad.
Does Jack look destined to leave this summer? Is Italy looking more and more likely?
