Jack Wilshere yet to Make Decision on Arsenal Future, ClaimsAfobe
Jack Wilshere had to move away from Arsenal on a temporary basis in order to prove that he is more than just a highly talented midfielder who can play only a handful of games during the course of a season.
The injury hit midfielder has struggled to even cross 30 appearances in a single campaign. Despite his obvious talent, his injury record is proving to be a major limiting factor towards his stay at Arsenal. This led to the loan move to Bournemouth – his first loan move since the days at Bolton.
One of the major factors behind this move was the presence of manager Eddie Howe, a manager who places a lot of emphasis on Arsene Wenger’s philosophy of beautiful football. The loan move could not have gone any better for Wilshere, as he has been integral to the club’s success in the league this season. Despite being a newly promoted outfit, Bournemouth have not shown any problems with the threat of relegation and they are even aiming for a top-10 finish.
Even though Wilshere is yet to score a goal for his new club, he has started 15 games in the league this season. However, his Bournemouth teammate Benik Afobe claims that Wilshere is yet to make a decision on his Arsenal future.
There are suggestions that Wilshere may consider leaving the club for regular first team football with Bournemouth thought to be one of his options. “This is something he has got to think about. To be honest I don’t think even he knows what he is going to be doing. We have conversations all the time and he just wants to play week in week out and see what happens at the end of the season.The main thing for him is about getting his confidence back and staying injury free,” said Afobe.
