Arsenal do not just have the best midfielders in the Premier League, but probably the highest number of central midfielders in the League.
Arsenal on-loan midfielder to Bournemouth Jack Wilshere has revealed that he is uncertain over his future with Arsenal, following his move to Bournemouth in the Summer.
Wilshere ascended the various grades of Arsenal but failed to establish himself as a first team player following series of lengthy injuries he sustained at Arsenal.
The 24-year-old, who is under contract in north London until 2018, has featured for Arsenal five times since May 2015.
“I haven’t really thought about my future beyond getting a season under my belt and just trying to improve as a player,” Wilshere said.
“I genuinely don’t know if I am going to end up at Arsenal or somewhere else.
“If you’d asked me two months ago if I was going to finish my career at Arsenal then I would have said, ‘Yeah, of course.’
“Two months ago I wouldn’t have seen myself being here, but here I am. And I’m enjoying it.”
Wilshere has started all but one of the eight games he has been at Bournemouth.
“There were a lot of midfielders and the manager brought another one in,” he added. ‘I’d been injured for a while, and I was thinking I was at a stage of my career where I needed to play.
“I’m 24 and I’ve already missed too much football, and, if I want to get to where I want to be, it’d be no good coming off the bench in every game.”
Wilshere played more games for England than he did Arsenal last season, but his exclusion from Sam Allardyce’s only squad as manager of the national team forced him to accept his situation.
“It was the final straw,” he said. “It hurt not being in there.”
