You couldn’t make it up. Poor Jack Wilshere was looking forward to a summer of decisions regarding his Arsenal future, with the choice of signing a new contract with the Gunners or putting himself on the market for a move away, with the rumours saying that both Man City and AC Milan were keen on signing him.
But now his dreams are in tatters after he has suffered yet another hairline fracture to his ankle, very similar to the one that he suffered two summers ago. This is how SkySports confirmed the bad news…
Jack Wilshere has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a broken leg sustained against Tottenham on Saturday, according to Sky sources.
Wilshere faces another prolonged absence after scan results revealed the severity of the injury.
It showed up a crack in his left fibula, similar to the injury which kept the Arsenal midfielder out for most of last season.
Wilshere, on a season-long loan at the Vitality Stadium, went down following a collision with Harry Kane after an hour of Saturday’s 4-0 defeat before being jeered by Spurs supporters at White Hart Lane.
Everything was going so well for Jack, with him making 27 appearances for Bournemouth and staying fit until now. He was also the top chance-creator in the side, and his sustained fitness was making him into a top transfer target for many top clubs as he will be entering the final year of his contract with Arsenal.
But now there will be no interest and he will be returning to Arsenal for treatment. His confidence will be shattered yet again, and god knows what will happen with his contract extension talks with the Gunners….
