Wilshere leaves Arsenal on loan

Jack Wilshere has left Arsenal for Bournemouth on a loan until the end of the season.


The England international has only recently come back from injury and clearly, lack match fitness. Many pundits believe that the player has taken the right decision, and this should allow him to recover his lost form.

Jack Wilshere has missed the whole of last season with some recurring injuries, and it is only in the last weeks of the season that he managed to come back into the Arsenal team. Despite clearly lacking match fitness he was selected for the England national team where he spent the majority of the tournament on the bench.

With Arsenal having signed Xhaka in the summer, Wilshere would have found it hard to compete for playing time at the moment, and Arsene Wenger has agreed to allow the midfielder to leave on loan. There were many clubs that were interested in the player among which was Bournemouth and Roma.

It is believed that Arsenal blocked the move to Roma because they were disappointed by the way the Italian club deal with them on a previous transfer. Instead, it was Bournemouth who was chosen, and the player has already had a medical with the team.

Pundits believe that this is the right move for the England international as there was no way that he could force his way into the present Arsenal team at the moment. It is better that he leave for a club where he will be guaranteed regular football in order to get a chance to find his form back.
It is also a good thing that the player remains in the Premier League as he will be in front of Sam Allardyce and this could boost his chances of getting back in the England national team.
