Arsenal to allow Wilshere leave on loan


Jack Wilshere could be heading out of Arsenal on loan, according to widespread reports on Tuesday.

Wilshere has been beset by injury problems for much of his career and missed most of last season due to a leg problem, only making three appearances for the Gunners.

Despite featuring six times for England over the summer, the midfielder has yet to start a game for Arsenal this season, managing just 37 minutes off the bench, and he was a notable omission from Sam Allardyce's first England squad.

Having brought in Switzerland midfielder Granit Xhaka for £35million, Arsenal are willing to let Wilshere go out on loan but the 24-year-old is running out of time to secure to a move before Wednesday's transfer deadline.

Speaking at a press conference on Monday, Allardyce warned Wilshere that he will not be selected until he is playing regularly.

"Jack just hasn't had enough game time. Hopefully he will get that in the future at Arsenal," Allardyce explained.

"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."
