Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere will confirm a move to Fenerbahce on Monday, according to reports in Turkey.

The England midfielder will be a free agent when his contract ends at the weekend, and confirmed his departure on social media.

Moves to Spain and Italy had been mooted in recent weeks but it now appears the 26-year-old is on the brink of a move to the Turkish giants.

Volkan Demir, a reporter for Sabah, revealed in a tweet he believed the player had left Istanbul after talks and expected a move to be confirmed on Monday.

Jack Wilshere ( @JackWilshere ) bugün İstanbul’dan ayrıldı. Benim aldığım bilgi bittiği yönünde… Fenerbahçe’nin ilk transferi hayırlı olsun. Transferin pazartesi açıklanmasını bekliyorum.

Wilshere had a decent campaign with Arsenal last season having spent 2016/17 on loan at Bournemouth as he looked to get an injury plagued career back on track.

His performances, though, did not convince incoming Arsenal manager Unai Emery and he is now being released by the Gunners.

Fenerbahce finished second in the Turkish Super Lig last season, challenging Galatasaray for the title.

Wilshere is seen as an upgrade on 37-year-old ex-Newcastle star Emre Belozoglu.
