Football pundit Tony Cascarino believes Arsene Wenger is trying to force Jack Wilshere out of Arsenal, according to the Daily Star.
The Gunners midfielder completed a deadline day move to Bournemouth on loan and Cascarino suggests it could spell the end of the midfielder’s future at the Emirates.
Wilshere made his debut for Arsenal as a 16-year-old and was touted as the next big thing in English football but he struggled with injury in the last couple of years which has pushed him down the pecking order at the club.
Wilshere was injured for almost the whole of last season and Cascarino suggests Wenger has given up on the 24-year-old, hence the reason he allowed the midfielder leave the club on loan.
Cascarino believes Wilshere’s move was just like that of Joe Hart who was forced out of Manchester City by Pep Guardiola.
“The reality is that this move is no different, no less brutal, than Joe Hart being hassled out of Manchester City,” Cascarino claimed.
“This stinks of Wenger wanting him out of the club. He’s done exactly what Pep Guardiola has done to Hart at City.
“I think issues off the pitch have played a role and Wenger has decided that Jack isn’t part of his plans any more.
“I have no doubt that Jack would have sat down with the gaffer after the first few games of the season — as many of us do — and it’s clear that Wenger hasn’t given him the answers he wanted.
“We have to stop kidding ourselves — he’s been forced out of the club.”
Wilshere has made over a century of appearances for Arsenal since making his debut in 2008 and he will be hoping his loan move to Bournemouth helps him get his Arsenal career back on track.
