So today the transfer window begins in earnest. Arsenal have officially announced the arrival of Stephan Lichtsteiner and at the same time, Jack Wilshere has made it clear that he will not be returning to the Emirates after the summer break.
The midfielder, who we all thought was going to be the new ‘Mr Arsenal’, has unfollowed Arsenal on Twitter, and is now following the official West Ham site and their captain Mark Noble. As it was revealed just a couple of hours ago…..

We all know that Jack is a born and bred Londoner and was always unlikely to move too far from his friends and family. To be fair, if he wanted to guarantee game time he could hardly have stayed at Arsenal, especially after his mediocre performances towards the end of last season. I just hope that Jack has better luck at West Ham – and can keep fit and actually realise his full potential at last….
Good luck Jack!
