Wilshere's Arsenal Future in Doubt as He Seeks World Cup Place


The Times reports Wilshere is pondering leaving Arsenal in January in a bid to get regular first-team football, which will aid his bid to get into Southgate's midfield plans for Russian Federation.

If his true desire is to go to East London to have more opportunities in England at the World Cup, he needs to think if the club is a good idea for his career.

Wilshere, whose deal expires in the summer of 2018, has been set a December deadline to convince Arsenal he is worthy of a new deal, which he can only justify with regular appearances and an injury-free spell in the team.

"I can play in the deeper midfield role, which I did against Doncaster, and then I went and played on the left", Wilshere told Arsenal Player.

"He has played games since the start of the season and he will play many more".

Ahead of Deepavali, the Prime Minister appealed to the well-off to use earthen lamps made by rural artisans for the festival. He added that the "facilities that are associated with cities must also be made available to our villages".

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere, 25, will entertain all offers in January as he seeks to claim a place in Gareth Southgate's England squad for Russian Federation 2018, according to The Times.

The midfielder only has four more chances to get into Gareth Southgate's England squad, with friendlies against Germany and Brazil scheduled for the November worldwide break and England playing Italy and the Netherlands next March.

A series of impact injuries over the last few years have seriously stunted his progress but he hopes to get back to his best in the near future.

Under Eddie Howe's stewardship last season, Wilshere helped Bournemouth finish ninth - the club's highest ever finish in their second season in the Premier League. Only Harry Arter matched him for chances created.

Crystal Palace are also said to be interested in Wilshere.
