Latest reports are claiming that Juventus are eyeing a deal to bring Jack Wilshere to Italy this summer, with the player set to depart on a free transfer at the end of his contract.
The 26 year-old has been with the club for the last 17 years, progressing through the youth ranks into the senior side in 2008, but has since struggled with a number of injury and fitness problems which have halted his progress.
Wilshere has always been touted as a future captain at club and international level, but after a number of large setbacks in the physio room, that looks an impossible dream.
Jack has been called ‘Mr Arsenal’, among a number of other nicknames, and fans will be disappointed to see him go, but he appears to be outside Unai Emery’s plans for the coming season, and nobody can blame him for leaving under the current circumstances…
His best option being booted around by the press was an offer to stay in London with West Ham United, with the club keen to raise their profile since their move to the London Stadium, but he may now be tempted to jet off to Italy.
Roma had been touted as an interested party some months back, but it is Italian champions Juventus who are now claimed to be eyeing a deal, and he could find himself paired in midfield with fellow free transfer Emre Can, who rejected the offer to stay with Liverpool in order to secure the switch this summer also.
Would Jack fit the style of play of Serie A? Could Jack turn down the chance to move abroad? Would a move to Juve pose a risk due to a lack of guaranteed game time?
