29-year-old free agent preparing for talks with ‘someone’ from Arsenal
Former Arsenal and England star Jack Wilshere is hopeful of beginning discussions about a return to the Emirates, three years since he left to sign for West Ham United
The midfielder burst onto the scene with the North Londoners back in 2010, before becoming a senior team member at the beginning of the 2010-11 term after a successful loan stint with Bolton Wanderers.
However, having been released by Bournemouth last term, Jack is currently without a club for the first time in his professional career.
The 29-year-old man was once touted for great things for country and club after shining in the first-leg of the Gunners’ 2-1 home victory over Barcelona in the 2010-11 Champions League season.
Ten years on, Jack could be set to begin training with Arsenal.
“Being around good players, training with world-class players and as well just being in a team environment is something I’m interested in,” said Jack.
“I’m sure that I’ll have a conversation with someone at the club over the next couple of days.”
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta appeared to be open to the idea of the player linking up with his former club again.
When quizzed about the possibility of the midfielder joining in with training, the Spaniard appeared to have a very open mind.
“Jack’s a great guy and someone I used to share a dressing room with. He’s loved here. The door is always open.” said the Arsenal chief.
