England and Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere will be allowed to leave the club on loan to find regular first-team football this summer. The England international has started the new season from the bench and has made two small appearances for the Gunners.
Wilshere’s progress has been halted by a knee injury and recent signings at the midfield position by Arsenal. The incoming of Mohamed Elneny from Basel in the January transfer window and Switzerland star Granit Xhaka in the summer means that the Englishman’s chances of making the first-team has decreased, as reported by Sky Sports.
Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger has two more days to find a suitable club for Wilshere to make his loan move. The summer transfer window ends on August 31, 2016 and it is important for the 24-year-old to find himself a club for getting regular game time.
England manager, Sam Allardyce named his first national team squad after being appointed by the FA recently. However, Wilshere was left out with “Big Sam” claiming that the midfielder needs to play regular first-team football to be back in contention for an international call.
“Jack just hasn’t had enough game time. Hopefully he will get that in the future at Arsenal. If Jack Wilshere was playing every week for Arsenal he would be in the squad, but unfortunately he isn’t.” Allardyce said.
Wenger believes that Wilshere still has a long-term role to play at the Emirates Stadium. However, a move away on loan to a different club at the moment will aid the progress and will benefit the player.
The availability of Wilshere’s talent on the transfer market will likely see a host of clubs enquiring about the midfielder. But, Wenger is unlikely to sanction a move to England’s top-four rivals. A move abroad looks more likely for the man from Stevenage, according to Mail Online.
Meanwhile, Arsenal defender Calum Chambers will make a loan move to Middlesbrough this summer.
