Jack Wilshere could make an unlikely transfer to top European club

It is great to see Jack Wilshere getting back to near his best.

The 26-year-old has suffered somewhat of an injury nightmare in recent years, limiting his playing time and consequently forcing him out of the first team picture at Arsenal.

There were rumours aplenty that he was to leave Arsenal before the end of the summer transfer window, but he remained in north London.

And that has proven to be a good decision as his performances have forced him back into Wenger's plans - and he is now a vital cog in Arsenal's midfield.

But, with just six months left on his contract, Wilshere's future is still unclear and there is still a distinct possibility that he could leave the Gunners for free in the summer.


Arsenal are believed to be keen on tying down Wishere to a contract extension, but talks between both parties are still ongoing.

In fact, the Sun have reported that Arsenal have offered their youth product a new contract, but he must pass a full medical and agree to a 20% pay cut.

It is likely that Wilshere will be unhappy with both of those requirements.

Thus, with Wilshere impressing and with only six months on his contract, he is bound to attract interest from top clubs around Europe.

And according to the Sun, Juventus are apparently keen on signing him on a free transfer in the summer.

The Italian giants have a knack of signing top players without having to pay a fee, with players such as Paul Pogba, Kingsley Coman and Dani Alves all joining the Turin based club in the past few years on a free transfer.

And it is believed their next target will be Jack Wilshere.

One of the Sun's sources said: "Jack interests Juventus and feelers have been put out. He is someone whose game would suit Serie A perfectly."


Wenger has consistently expressed his desire to keep the Englishman at the club and he reiterated that feeling just a few days ago.


"I see Jack staying because he is an Arsenal man," Wenger said. "He was here at the age of ten and has some leadership qualities. He has a football brain.

"He is completely focused on Arsenal. The fact he has been away and come back... he realises life here is not so bad, maybe.

"That is something that is important, that he can be one of the leaders in the future. Who would question his love and commitment for the club? Nobody.

"We have to find an agreement that makes him happy and the wish that in the future he remains fit."

With Juventus circling, Arsenal fans will undoubtedly be hoping a deal between Wilshere and Arsenal can be done very soon.
