Ex-Arsenal man tips Wilshere to play for the club this season

Former Arsenal man, Ray Parlour, predicts a turn of events could see Arsenal give Jack Wilshere a contract this season.

The Englishman has been training with the Gunners’ first team for some time now as he builds his fitness and searches for a new club.

While the club abandoned their former captain, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, at home, they took the ex-England star to their training camp in Dubai.

Wilshere had hoped to find a new club in the last transfer window, but that never happened.

He would now hope someone takes a chance on him before this season ends.

Could that be Arsenal? Parlour thinks it is a possibility and tells TalkSport as quoted by Express Sports:

“He’s training with them every day now. I don’t think he’d be used, if I’m being honest.

“But if there was a massive injury crisis, you never know in football what can happen. You could get two or three midfield players injured.

“Mikel Arteta will know if he’s sharp enough, because it’s totally different from training to competitive games, totally different.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Wilshere should be enjoying playing time at a Premier League club now, however, his injury history is robbing him of that chance.

Mikel Arteta has been clear that the midfielder is only getting help from the club to stay fit.

However, you truly never know in football. Things could change quickly and he is offered a chance to play for Arsenal again.

  1. If Jack really wants to play he should accept an offer from any team who makes him an offer. Apparently Lancing FC in the SE Isthmian league are keen on signng Jack. He should start there and work his way up. They are offering 300 quid a game and the number 10 plus free boots.. Whats not to like about that offer? Jack should not be too proud to accept such a generous offer. If he really wants to play he would have accepted an offer by now.

  2. I think he already has an offer or he’s signed. He is putting on Jersey number 12 all the time.

    What do you think fellas?

  3. I disagree “that you never know in football” On many things, including Wilsheres tragic decline, due to injuries , lifestyle, smoking and his own too foolish bravery when diving into tackles, WE DO KNOW, that as a player in a Prem level team, he IS finished for sure.

    I am 100% certain, even if we have a real injury crisis, that Wilshere will not ever play for us again competitively.

  4. Wilshere didn’t play for us in January when we had almost zero midfielders available at times. In fact, he wasn’t even on the bench.

    He was fit and available, had been training with us for months, so that tells me he won’t play for us again.

  5. Is /Was he registered to play for us in January and today?

    Mind you, certain fans think he only played two great games for us and so it could be another Willian signing in the making if that was true.

    I wonder why he went to Dubia, if the only reason he’s at the club is for match fitness and helping out with the youngsters?

    Let’s see what MA decides and Jack?…. you will forever be a true Gooner.

  6. this would not be a good look for our club, especially on the heels of a dreadful window, at least from an incoming perspective…that said, it’s been quite some time since we cared about optics, so I wouldn’t be surprised whatsoever if we pulled another amateur hour maneuver

  7. Would love to see him back at arsenal cos i think he can still help out when needed but arteta is not interested cos he’s afraid he might not follow orders and still succeed leading to crucifixation by fans if he falls out with him.
