Crystal Palace have entered the race to land Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere on loan.
Italian giants Roma and La Liga outfits Valencia are also interested in offering a season long loan deal for the Arsenal midfielder. Reports of Italian champions Juventus interested in the midfielder is also doing the rounds.
However, Palace are hoping to be the front-runners to sign the player if he stays in the Premier League with Arsenal ready to sanction the switch. Arsenal are reportedly not interested in sending Wilshere to a top-four rival and so the Eagles can fancy their chances.
The 24-year has been limited to two Premier League appearances off the bench so far this season- totaling 37 minutes- after his pre-season campaign was slowed by a knee injury. He was also left out of the latest England squad with new boss Sam Allardyce citing his lack of regular action and ongoing fitness issues.
The England international is now the sixth choice midfielder in Arsenal. And that is because the likes of Santi Cazorla, Aaron Ramsey, Theo Walcott, Granit Xhaka, Mesut Ozil and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are all getting the nod ahead of him.
The midfielder is determined to revive his career at Arsenal and wants a move away from the Emirates to get good first-team action.
Meanwhile, Palace are looking for a replacement to challenge James McArthur and Yohan Cabaye in central midfield. Genoa’s Tomas Rincon is another player the Premier League club has expressed an interest in, with the Italian club asking Palace to pay £8.5m for the 28-year-old. The Eagles have had a busy transfer window so far with the arrival of Christian Benteke from Liverpool on a permanent deal and Loic Remy from Chelsea on a loan deal.
