Jack Wilshere has found life good during his loan spell at Bournemouth in the Premier League. His Arsenal career however could already be over and that’s according to Jamie Redknapp. The 43-year-old believes that Wilshere must give up on his dream of playing for Arsenal in order to be successful in his football career.
“I don’t see a future at Arsenal any more, I think now he will realize 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.” Redknapp said to Sky Sports.
Wilshere chose to make a move to Bournemouth this season after several injury laden years at his boyhood club. Even since his switch, the England international has been a standout performer for his club.
The 24-year-old featured for The Cherries against Tottenham Hotspur last weekend where he played for the entire 90 minutes. This is an achievement for the player, since this was his first 90 minutes for 771 days and BBC was quick to note on it.
It's been a while.

Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger chose to send Wilshere on a loan deal out of the club to rediscover his form. The main intention behind the deal was to get the player healthy and regularly play again. The man from Stevenage, United Kingdom has certainly done that since making his move to Bournemouth.
However, one must take note whether Wilshere must quit on his dream to play for Arsenal in order to make the best out of his footballing career. The Gunners midfield is stacked with expensive and quality talent and it will be a challenge for the England international to claim a place in the first-team regularly.
Wilshere will have a very important decision to take once his loan spell at Bournemouth comes to an end. He could decide to switch to a club like Everton, where he would find more playing opportunities and this will boost his chances of becoming a regular for the England national team. On the other hand, he could try and test his luck with Arsenal, where he will have to fight to be a regular starter under Wenger.
