Has Jack Wilshere given up on Arsenal dream?

Jack Wilshere is claimed to have called time on his stay as an Arsenal player, with an exit speculated to be on the cards.

The 25 year-old has been with the club since the age of nine, and had become a first team regular early into his career. Things were not plain sailing from there however, with a number of long-term injuries having stunted his progression, with many believing he would be the next big star to break through at Arsenal.

We will all remember the time that Wilshere completely bossed the game against Barcelona in the Champions League previously, but that same player has not been seen for some time now, and he appears to have given up of being the future captain at our club.

Jack spent last term on loan with Bournemouth and was enjoying a return to regular action and a return to fitness, but as with most previous years, an injury put an end to that run, and that looks to have made his mind up about his future.

Newcastle are claimed to be keen on bringing him up north, while a few other clubs appear to also be interested in his signature, and while his current contract is into it’s final 12 months, the fee is not expected to be huge.

The Magpies are also keen on signing Lucas Perez from our club this summer, although only on a temporary basis, but the player is believed to favour a return to Spain, with hopes of making the international squad for the World Cup next summer in Russia.

Arsenal appear to be willing to allow both to leave for the right price, but it still seems a shame to lose Wilshere after all we have done for him.

Should we have tried to include Wilshere this term?

    BYE weelchair,” it’s a pity that Mr pity died on a pity day” You had a lot of potentials but was also injury prone and guess what ? potential and injury prone player can’t win you titles… i know i might sound too harsh to some people but i think it’s time for us to cut our losses on him so that we can bring in fit and world class midfielder at 25 he should be bossing our midfield but we all know the STORY.. Good luck in your future endeavors.

      be aware of offending countless wheelchair users who happen to support arsenalFC just as you do.

  2. Eddy Hoyte says:

    Sell him with a buy back clause. I know he’s 25, but he was one of our best midfielders when fit. The pyhsios at Newcastle might help him turn things around and he could get over this in the future. We all love him but it’s time for him to try his career elsewhere. But with a buyback clause. Just in case

    1. Vlad says:

      Just like the physios at Bournemouth helped him? He’s damaged goods. And a lot of it has to do with the way he plays. He won’t change, so it’s time to say goodbye to him.

    Pity jacks legs are made of glass, could have been world class if not for several serious injuries.

    Shame really, wish jack all the best but it is maybe time for him to move on.

  4. Yossarian says:

    It’s a shame with his natural talent, and with him being a genuine Arsenal fan, but we’re not going to miss his contributions on the pitch because he’s hardly ever on it.

    Such a pity. Like Diaby who was full with talent Jacks bodey is just not up for the job

    1. Lugdush says:

      IMO, diaby was to much gift than wilshere…the truth is wilshere jas a nice dribble an avereage pass and an awfull shoot…he has a lot of energy and playa with his hearth…the last was the best of his qualities…he is a fan, so he can die for the team…but talking about football quality, diaby was a lot better…diaby was absoulutly outstanding each time he plays…inteligent player, dribbling, pace, strenght, great pass, great shot…losing him was a very low kick, one of those things that wenger was not guiltt but victim (one of just a few)

  6. Me says:

    How much is Wilshere on ?
    £90k a week for basically doing nothing then getting injured.
    Of course he has not given up – its money for nothing and the continued support of a manager who is keen to keep deadwood like him at the club.
    That is the problem at Arsenal half the squad are good players and the other half are not or are persistently injured – that leads to lack of competition and complacency all of which lead to Arsenal failing to compete.
    It does not bode well long term…

  7. Elliot says:

    Anyone else bummed out already? Don’t know about you guys but I’m still not happy with the team. Way to much deadwood and still no cm. I think we need a cm, a cb and a creative forward. I fear that we won’t make top 4 again due to our sloppy transfer business. Lacazette and kolasinac are great and I’m really happy with them but I still feel we need more to compete.

  8. Prakash Gupta says:

    Don’t forget that this Wilshere was caught smoking a hookah a year or two ago and destroying himself at the bar. I have no regard for such players who pay no heed to their health and fitness.

  9. Waal2waal says:

    jack is so young lots of possibilities remain for him on his life journey. provided he regains focus he can be an asset to any “other” lower ranked team. for all we know he could hav a future in management and return with success in that way – hold on to your afc dream jack wilshire for you its not a goodbye rather its bon voyage.
