Goonersden brings you news from top football news sites from the likes of ESPN, SkySport, Daily Mail, Daily Star and Metro… We also Analyse football, player, transfer and predict Arsenal starting line-up.
Sky Sports pundit Jamie Redknapp and former Tottenham Hotspur boss Tim Sherwood believe Jack Wilshere’s Arsenal career is under threat and he needs to use this spell at Bournemouth to prove himself.
The last two years has been tough for the midfielder as he struggled to deal with injuries. In a bid to get back to full fitness, the midfielder opted to join the Cherries on loan until the end of the season. He has done well so far at Bournemouth and managed to complete his first 90 minutes in two years on Saturday.
However, both Sherwood and Redknapp believes with the competition for midfield places at Arsenal, Wilshere will be better off moving away.
We currently have Granit Xhaka, Francis Coquelin, Aaron Ramsey, Santi Carzola and Mohammed Elneny occypying the position where Wilshere is usually deployed and speaking to Sky Sports, Redknapp believes even a successful loan spell at Bournemouth will not guarantee Wilshere a place in our squad.
‘I don’t see a future at Arsenal any more, I think now he’ll realise he has got to get away from Arsenal. It’s too comfortable for him there. He is not going to get into the team at Arsenal regularly.
‘If he makes that move he can show what he is all about. No disrespect, I think he’s a step above Bournemouth, but I think it’s a great thing for him to do. He’s really putting himself out there.’
‘I’m sure he’d go back there because he is a good talent to have around, but I agree with Jamie, this is a great stepping stone for him.
Wilshere is a fan favorite at Arsenal and i’m sure thousands of Gooners will be keen to see the England international come back and establish himself as a key man in our squad. However, the competition in midfield makes it look a bit difficult but Wilshere is a player with so much quality and if he can prove his fitness this season, Wenger would find a place for him in our team.
