Bournemouth confirm Arsenal’s Wilshere. Right move for Jack?

Jack Wilshere has been confirmed as joining AFC Bournemouth on loan from Arsenal for the current season.

The Cherries confirmed it on their official website with the following:

AFC Bournemouth have agreed terms to sign Jack Wilshere on loan until the end of the season.

The England international will join the Cherries for the 2016-17 Premier League campaign, after agreeing terms to join from Arsenal.
The 24-year-old will bolster Eddie Howe’s options in midfield and bring international experience, having been capped 34 times for England at senior level.
“Jack is a fantastic addition to the club,” commented chief executive Neill Blake.
“He is a player that needs no introduction and one that, quite rightly, our supporters will be excited to see in a Bournemouth shirt.

“He will bring a wealth of international and Premier League experience, so we are delighted to be able to welcome a player of his calibre to the club.”

The 24 year-old’s career has stuttered in recent seasons due to a number of injury setbacks, and he will now be able to try and get back to enjoying some regular first-team action.

Hopefully Jack will be able to start fulfilling his potential again this year, and come back to his boyhood club ready to hit the ground running, and reaffirm himself as the future of Arsenal Football Club.

Will Bournemouth provide the right place for Jack to start enjoying football again, and get his career back on track?

  1. Probably good for him … Problem for us is if santi gets injured midfield creativity reverts to Ramsey which will lead us nowhere …

  2. Great move, stays in the Pl but gets a chance to play, (if not crocked) at a lower level team where he will be the main man and get regular game time. Gives arsene the opportunity to finally see if he has a future with us. Critical season for you Jack, wish you all the best!

  3. @rkw. Very true but let’s see what Perez, elneny and xhaka can offer in the creativity dept before we get too worried. Also the January window is not too far away! 🙂

  4. So this window, we sign 6 (including asano nwakali)

    Sell/release 7 (including chatzitheodoris)

    Loan out 13 (including asano nwakali)

    Sign 11 scholars

    A turnover of 37 moves but certainly reduced the size of the squad. Just 54 professionals to choose from lol!

  5. Considering that Wenger didn’t sign anyone else today, it is quite shocking for him to loan Jack out.
    Hey, maybe wenger knows that Jack is due a big lay off with injury … again? ?

    Oh well, I was hoping for a nice last minute surprise from uncle Ebenezer… But i should know better than that.l
    Where there’s hope, there’s always dissapointment. ?

    It could have been worse, as there was an injury scare with Mustafi, during Germanys friendly early.

    Overall, our summer signings were mixed between Good and mediocre, with a dash of ‘we’ll have to wait and see’ ?

    1. There were no WC players but nobody has been proven mediocre YET

      Xhaka: Very Good
      Perez: Good
      Mustafi: Good
      Holding: Wait and see
      Asano: wait and see

  6. afc camden and arsenal horse are absolute bull****
    should be banned from twitter just like emanuele guwhatever ben fairthorne an all those losers

    this window went well for us, hopefully our injuries are minimal

    1. Hahaha I make you right muff.
      no doubts that we will be hearing about all the nearly signed players, for the next fortnight or so. Lol ?

  7. The Spuds got Sissoko in the end… £30 million.
    Poor Everton, getting done in the last minute, twice in a week from us and the Spuds.

  8. Not really fussed about jack however I am dissapointed with gnabry going that’s going to come by to bite us mark my words.

    I think wenger has seen enough from Rene Adelaide to promote him to first team squad n show faith in him if needed. 6ft 2/3 strong dribbler, eye for a pass , string tackler ticks all the boxes at 18.

    Jacks not going to be a loss we all know that but let’s hope he does well n can stay injury free.

    Finally Wenger showing a bit of bottle n dropping players who ain’t contributing to the team.

    1. Ramsey aint contributing anything, and he is still around.. and when he comes back you’ll see some positional changes to other players to accommodate him

  9. WENGER AND THE ARSENAL BOARD ARE A JOKE. Wenger said he would not sign anybody unless they could make a difference in other words Top Class Quality Players. What does he do signs a striker no one has ever heard off and from all accounts someone he rejected last month.
    Why Because he is CHEAP 17m a top class striker would have cost 60M plus but old money bags went for the cheap option. Arsenal will remain an also ran team until Wenger and the Arsenal Board are replaced.

  10. Wonder how close the Sturridge signing was. Didn’t realise he was Arsenal fan – if he were injury free he’d be an awesome addition

    Wenger – put him in your list for gettable strikers for future

  11. I think it’s a good move for him, I think he will become a key player for Bournemouth this season.

    On top of this, the smaller clubs seem to get less injuries, whether it’s lower expectations, less intensive training, less games etc etc I think this can only be a good thing for Jack.

    Eddie Howe seems like a pretty good manager and let’s hope that Wilshire focuses on getting his career back on track.
