Have Arsenal found their midfield solution in former Gunners star?

Wilshere fallen on tough times

One time Arsenal star Jack Wilshere has had a tough career, with his undoubted talent hampered by the regularity of his injury woes, which saw him nicknamed “Jack Wheelchair” by many.

In a revealing interview with The Athletic, the former Arsenal and England man revealed that he felt the door had been closed to him in England due to his injury reputation, but had been training with Italian side Como in pre-season.

Wilshere made 198 appearances for the Gunners during his first spell, but amid injury to Mohammed Elneny and the loss of both the Egyptian and Thomas Partey to the Africa Cup of Nations in January, could he be set to return?

When asked about the possibility of Wilshere coming to train with his side, Mikel Arteta hinted it was a possibility, saying:

“Jack’s a great guy & someone I used to share a dressing room with. He’s loved here. Our doors are always open.”

Wilshere responds

In the aftermath of these comments, Wilshere has once again made it clear that he would be very interested in joining up with the Gunners even to train, and spoke of his admiration for Arteta, who he partnered in midfield several times.

The Englishman said:

“I really enjoyed playing with him, sharing a dressing room with him. To hear him come out & say the door is always open is nice. I’m sure I’ll have a conversation with someone at the club over the next few days.” 

Could we see Wilshere back in an Arsenal shirt this season?
