Arsene Wenger feels Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere needs the proper rehabilitation over the summer before any talk of playing at the Olympics.

The 20-year-old has not featured for the Gunners all season because of a niggling ankle problem which was initially picked up on international duty with England and eventually needed surgery.

Speaking ahead of Saturday's Barclays Premier League trip to Stoke, the Arsenal manager said: "At the moment Jack has a different worry. His focus is to get back on the football pitch and play, there is not one specific target like the Olympics or the European Championships, although he is out of that."
