Arsenal boss Arsène Wenger thinks that fan favourite Jack Wilshere is close to returning to his best of form, and believes the box to box midfielder could seal a regular spot in the Arsenal team if he continues.
As we are just moving close to the end of an international break where midfielder Jack Wilshere was not selected to join up with the Three Lions, Arsene Wenger was inevitably questioned about his future, and whether he’d need to exit the North london club to get into the national team.
The midfielder has grown on the Gunners fanbase in recent weeks. Fans are obviously a bit hesitant to get too happy about the midfielder, given what’s happened in the past years, however.
Injuries have disrupted his football career so heavily that he has not played 30 league matches in a season since 2010/11, and even the 27 games he played last season for AFC Bournemouth is unmatched in every campaign other than that 2010/11 season.
Last campaign, as mentioned, Jack Wilshere managed to put together a run of games lasting most of the year. However, he sustained injury at the end, and despite good outings, the lack of goals and assists were still a major concern.
