Wilshere theories emerge as he joins Arsenal first-team in Dubai

There are rumours emerging surrounding the future of Jack Wilshere, with some believing he is set to sign a deal with Arsenal.

The midfielder has been without a club since parting ways with Bournemouth in the summer of 2021, after a short stint with the club where he made 17 appearances between January and the end of the season, having initially started to train with the club in December 2020 before earning a role.

He has given a number of interviews since admitting that he has been struggling to find a new club, before later returning to London Colney to train whilst he attempted to keep his fitness us in hope of being ready should a club come calling.

Some now believe he could well be called on by his former club Arsenal, who are a little shy on options in midfield, and while the shunned Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been left behind while the first-team squad departed for Dubai for a training camp, CaughtOffside reports that Wilshere has travelled with the side.

I’m personally not getting ahead of myself, as I actually believe that he has been working more as a coach around the training ground. I feel like he could well be signed to the backroom team instead of joining the first-team, but it is definitely interesting news to hear that he has in fact travelled to Dubai.

If Wilshere was an option in midfield, I struggle to believe that we didn’t consider some sort of short-term deal for January whilst our players were away on international duty, but that is just my personal thinking, be it logical or not…

    1. Are you forgetting how good Jack was, when he wasn’t injured. He’s probably better than anyone, we have now. Besides Odegaard.

      1. “Was” since then he put in a poor season with us and then an absolutely abysmal time with WHU and couldnt get selected when fit

    2. The only reason he’s going to Dubai is to make up the numbers as per Arsenal official.MA & Wilshere had a chat before he came back to the club and it was made clear to him that he was there only to train with the team and take his first steps into coaching.

  1. I really do hope so. I love Jack, he was Arsenal through and through. I remember taking my children down the road to the 2015 FA Cup parade and and just before they pick up the cup in front of the Emirates, Wilshire takes the mic and starts the Tottenham chant…
    Jack: ‘I’ve got one question and one question only. What do we think of Tottenham?’
    Crowd: ‘SH*T.’
    Jack: ‘What do we think of sh*t?’
    Crowd: ‘TOTTENHAM.’
    Jack: ‘Thank you!’
    Crowd: ‘That’s Alright!’
    ‘We hate Tottenham, we hate Tottenham.’ x3.
    🤣🤣🤣 It definitely cemented the rivalry against Spurs for the next generation.
    Jack was definitely a good player for us, reminded me of a Jack Russell nipping at your ankles in midfield, always harrying and harassing the opposition and running at them at full speed, he didn’t have a volume button, always at max tempo. I think he would suit our style of play now and the romantic in me wants this so badly. The realist in me says don’t get your hopes up as the Instagram post shown on CaughtOffside might be for a coaching role, as he’s been doing his badges. Whether playing or coaching or something else, I hope it is good news and a step forward for Jack, I believe he deserves it for past services rendered, he is Arsenal through and through.

  2. I love JW but I really don’t want him hanging around Arsenal and causing distractions and rumours….he’s becoming like that family member that doesn’t get the hint when it’s time to go home.

    I’m 100% sure a club in the Middle East/China/Japan/Oz/USA would take him but he wants a move back to a big club or at least a Championship club so I don’t buy his story of being desperate to play. He should ask Newcastle!

  3. Although it seems unlikely atm, I wouldn’t put it past us. Yep I can invision it now, after deadline day passes and we haven’t sign a midfielder the club then offer him a deal until the end of the season. But it still doesn’t solve our issue, we don’t have a top quality Dm specialist in our squad which Jack isn’t is being overlooked by Arteta and Edu.
