Arsenal’s 2018 summer transfer window might be remembered for years to come as a game changer. If they are able to land stars who can make an immediate impact next season, the Gunners may well be able to see some glory days not too long after losing Arsene Wenger. But they will also have to work really hard to keep a few of their first team stars at the club. One such player, who is inching closer to an exit this summer is Jack Wilshere.
The English midfielder, having earned a tag as an injury-prone footballer, lost his place in Gareth Southgate’s World Cup squad for England and is now desperate to sort his future out quickly. He broke into the European scene as a youngster under Arsene Wenger, showing great promise for the future.
However, injuries and lack of form have seen him drop down the pecking order at Arsenal, into a squad player. He would have been tempted to quit the club if Wenger stayed in charge but reports now suggest that Unai Emery is happy to keep him in London on a new long-term deal. However, Wilshere will be a free agent at the end of this month and his future lies in his hands now.
