According to reports in The Sun, Jack Wilshere has demanded to leave Arsenal on loan during crunch talks with his boss Arsene Wenger.

The injury-prone midfielder has been limited to two Premier League appearances off the bench so far this season after his pre-season campaign was slowed by a knee injury.

The 24-year old, who was seen as one of the most exciting talents in the Premier League, is now Arsenal’s sixth choice central midfielder since the arrival of Switzerland international Granit Xhaka.

Jack Wilshere could be allowed to leave Arsenal on loan

The daily reported that the Gunners boss is not willing to let the midfielder  leave permanently but will consider a loan move before the transfer deadline to help Wilshere get regular first-team action.

The England international was also axed from Sam Allardyce’s first England squad, named on Sunday, and he revealed Wilshere would have to be playing regular football to get back into contention for an England recall. Although Allardyce expected the midfielder to feature in the Arsenal team.

“Jack just hasn’t had enough game time. Hopefully he will get that in the future at Arsenal,” said Allardyce.

“If Jack Wilshere was playing every week for Arsenal he would be in the squad, but unfortunately he isn’t. It is game time for him and it has been few and far between because he has had too many injuries unfortunately.

“It is a question of game time and the contribution he is making to Arsenal and he is not doing that at the moment, so I left him out.”

With the prospect of featuring for Arsenal looking highly unlikely, Wilshere wants to move away from the North London club to play as much as possible to win back his place with Arsenal and England.

He missed the majority of the 2015-16 season with a broken leg and competition for places in the Arsenal midfield has only been increased after the arrival of Xhaka and Mohamed Elneny.

Injuries have limited Wilshere to just 159 Arsenal appearances since he made his debut way-back in 2008.


    An avid sports lover, i always wanted to pursue a career in football. But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan. You will never walk alone.
