According to reports in Sky Italia, Italian giants Juventus and Roma are interested in taking Jack Wilshere on a season-long loan deal from Arsenal.
The report claimed that the defending Serie A champions have emerged as contenders to sign the England international. Meanwhile, The Daily Telegraph has reported that Roma are also interested in the midfielder but want Arsenal to contribute towards the wages.
Juventus first expressed an interest in signing Wilshere two years ago but the Gunners rejected their approach straight away. However, the Italian outfit are believed to be on the lookout for another midfielder after selling their star midfielder Paul Pogba to Manchester United for a world-record fee despite bringing in Miralem Pjanic from Roma.
The injury-prone midfielder has been limited to two Premier League appearances off the bench so far this season totalling 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 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.
Wilshere is set to leave the Gunners after being told that his first-team opportunities would be limited. According to reports, Wilshere is yet to make a decision on his next destination but is determined to revive his career away from the Emirates.
