— Jack Wilshere set to leave Arsenal in January to salvage England World Cup spot
Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere is willing to quit the club in January to keep alive his hopes of playing for England in next summer’s World Cup.
Wilshere is out of contract at the end of the season but fears a lack of playing time at the Emriates will prevent his dream of representing England at next summer’s World Cup. The 25-year-old spent last season on loan at Bournemouth and the Cherries were keen to sign Wilshere on a permanent deal.
According to the Mirror, Crystal Palace, West Brom and Real Betis are keen on signing Wilshere and he could quit his boyhood club in January.
Wilshere sustained an injury towards the end of the season but he’s now fully recovered and has featured heavily in Arsenal’s Europa League campaign.
However, the midfielder is yet to start a Premier League match this term and was overlooked for England’s upcoming international friendlies against Brazil and Germany because of a lack of game time.
Arsene Wenger remains a huge admirer of Wilshere and believes he still has a key part to play in Arsenal’s future. However, the midfielder could view a clean break from the club as the perfect chance to get his career back on track.
