Why Arsenal MUST reject Milan’s transfer bid for Wilshere

For the time being everyone concerned with the situation of the on loan Arsenal star should be quite happy and not too focused on what may happen in the future. Jack Wilshere should be happy that he is getting regular game time with his loan club AFC Bournemouth and the manager of the Cherries, Eddie Howe, seems happy to have him, while Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal fans will be glad to see our injury plagued midfielder gaining fitness and form which is why he left Arsenal in the first place.

Sooner or later, however, decisions on the England international’s future will have to be made and that has been brought into the light a bit this week with the Daily Star reporting that other clubs are already starting to follow Wilshere’s situation and the Serie A club AC Milan are already thinking about making a move for him in the transfer market.

This transfer bid from Italy is not likely to happen until the end of this season but if and when they do make a move I think that Wenger and the Arsenal board have to reject it and bring Wilshere back into the fold. Jack may not have opened his scoring tally for Bournemouth yet but he has hit the woodwork more times than any other player in the Premier League and it is only a matter of time.

He was denied by the post again on Saturday but his influence is growing and he was even included in the EPL team of the week picked by Metro. So with the Gunners struggling in midfield without the Spaniard Santi Cazorla, who is not getting any younger, the idea that Arsenal do not need a player of Wilshere’s ability and class seems a bit misguided.

We do have a lot of options in central midfield but does that really mean that Wilshere is surplus to requirements? Not if he stays fit it doesn’t, so will Arsenal be saying Grazi but no Grazi to any transfer bid from Milan?

    We need wishere, i think he would have been the right player to replace Santi had he not left on loan because has the talent of turning defence into attack.

  2. Alexis the Great says:

    I think the decision will be all Jack’s to make.
    He will have just one year left on his contract in the summer so he can force Arsenal to sell if he wants. You never know he might fancy a few years in sunnier climes. I know I would!

    Jack is no Santi replacement. He is more of an Ozil type player. He and Aaron both covet that spot. They both like getting forward but not tracking back or having to defend too much.

      Jack is closest to Santi we have, he just have to know when to release the 4**g ball.

      1. NY_Gunner says:

        Get real. Jack is nowhere near Santi. He doesn’t have the agility, drive and discipline of Carzola. He is also weak at defending.

    2. frisco says:

      Just like you said Jack is not Carzola! !you don’t compare Jaguar with MG!!!!!We really don’t miss Jack, like he never existed, but we miss Carzola God we miss him, just sell him and case close. Why jou want someone you don’t miss or need?

    Am probably going to get a thumb down,but I will say it. Firstly,Jack is nowhere near cazorla in footballing aspect. Secondly we are not struggling in Midfield,Wenger sometimes doesn’t know how to use the right players in midfield for some matches,would have preferred Xhaka in that midfield against Man U as he can distribute a good pass from midfield.

  5. Wilshegz says:

    first of all, Wilshere is very agile, in fact aside Alexis I don’t think there is an Arsenal player more agile than Wilshere.
    Cazorla is not also great defensively either, his strength is in dictating play from deep n dribbling same as Wilshere is on a good day(b4 Injuries came).
    Finally no1 is saying Wilshere is as good as Cazorla what we saying his Wilshere is the closest midfielder we have IN STYLE OF PLAY to Santi.

    Please rank the following Santi replacements:

    Xhaka, Willshere, Ramsey, Isco
