Jack Wilshere’s Uncertain Future

As the season’s end draws closer, players and clubs alike will be in for a busy summer of change. Players coming and going, clubs preparing for life in a different league. This summer is also one of the most important periods of Jack Wilshere’s career.

Jack Wilshere has been on on loan at Bournemouth from Arsenal this season, the England international has made 27 league appearances this season. Wilshere suffered another injury in Bournemouth’s hammering at the hands of Tottenham, it remains to be seen whether it was Wilshere’s final appearance of the season. Wilshere left White Hart Lane on crutches wearing a protective boot on his injured left foot.

With Arsene Wenger’s future still up in the air, it means there is more uncertainty over Jack Wilshere’s future. His loan spell hasn’t gone as well as he would’ve liked, Wilshere has had the game time but has really struggled at times this season. Wilshere is yet to score this season and has only provided three assists. There is no doubting his ability, I hope for his sake that his latest injury isn’t as bad as it looks. Wilshere, when fit and full of confidence is one of England’s finest midfielders. Wilshere deserves to stay injury free, he continues to come back from each set back, I would hate for the injuries to take their toll on Wilshere.

Wilshere has a massive decision to make at the end of the season, whether he stays with Arsenal or moves on to pastures new. The latter would probably be the best option for Wilshere. The fact that Arsene Wenger didn’t realise that Wilshere could walk in to Arsenal’s current midfield is cause for concern. Jack Wilshere is the type of player Arsenal have needed this season, someone with real passion for the club that can drag them out of the mess they are in at the moment. Wilshere needs to be somewhere he is wanted, somewhere he can be one of main men. Whether Bournemouth can afford him in the summer is questionable, when you consider the Englishmen’s wages.

Wilshere must put himself first, a decision on his future must be made purely on what is best for the player. Wilshere has seen himself fall out of favour in regards to the England set up. The midfielder will be determined to perform well consistently next season, Wilshere will want to be in England’s World Cup squad. With the World Cup next summer, it makes Wilshere’s decision an even bigger one. Would he risk staying at Arsenal and not getting the appropriate game time? It is best for Wilshere that he moves on. At 25, Wilshere still has a long career ahead of him.

One thing is certain, there will be a number of clubs interested in signing Jack Wilshere this summer. If a club can keep Jack fit and keep his confidence up, he can add so much quality to a team.
