Wilshere says he has been training at the highest level at Arsenal

Jack Wilshere remains hopeful of restarting his football playing career again as he continues to train with Arsenal.

The Hale Ender has been unattached since he left Bournemouth at the end of last season.

The injuries that plagued him when he turned out for clubs like West Ham and his final years at Arsenal have made him an unattractive free agent.

But the midfielder maintains he is fit enough to play at the highest level again.

He has been training with Mikel Arteta’s first team and he even travelled with them to their Dubai training camp.

In a recent interview, he insists if he is not at the required level, Arteta would have stopped him from training with his group.

He tells The Daily Mail: ‘I always said when I went back to Arsenal that I would make a decision about my next step at the end of January. When you’ve been out the game, you never know which way it will go.

‘But it has convinced me that my playing career isn’t over. The manager is top class, and I wouldn’t still be training with the first team if I was bringing the standard down or couldn’t keep up.

‘I can still beat a man, and these are top players. That’s a sign, for me, that I can still do it and want to keep doing it.’

Just Arsenal Opinion

Arsenal is doing its best to help the midfielder find a new club and he might be closer to another football chance than we know it.

Wilshere is one of the finest players we have ever produced and he deserves to be playing at the top level now.

Hopefully, his time with our first team will help him find a new home soon.

  1. “he deserves to be playing at the top level now”
    quite a stretch don’t you think, considering what has transpired over the last several years…of course, I wish nothing but the best for our former player, but to suggest that he “deserves” to get another shot in the big show is a rather ridiculous notion

  2. Why is he training with First team players while wearing jeasey 12 in Dubai and not a training suit written JW? Is he already signed?Let us know we beg?From Zambia

  3. Pay as you play, simple may help, has more skill in his little toe than Xhaka and Partey put together

    1. as you know, we’re in agreement on many things Arsenal-related, but this last take of yours, only in regards to Partey, is quite a reach…that said, I would suggest that your seemingly “negative” opinion of Partey is understandable considering the fact that the predominantly negative tactics that have been deployed since his arrival have only allowed us to witness flashes of what he has to offer

    2. Totally agree, that makes complete sense.
      Just read that Santi is still turning it on and the decision to part with his services has proved to be wrong – why not give Jack this kind of contract?
      God knows we have plenty of spaces to fill!!!

  4. Wilshire is a busted flush as far as top flight football is concerned but maybe a league one or two club would benefit, if he is prepared for meagre wages.
