Jack Wilshere’s injury has been pushed to February of 2016

Arsenal’s injury curse continues rolling on as many of Arsene Wenger’s key players have been suffering from injury spells including: Danny Welbeck, Santi Cazorla, Mikel Arteta, Tomas Rosicky and Jack Wilshere, are some of the more notable players of Arsenal who have recently suffered injuries.

Jack Wilshere has not managed to play a single minute of the Premier League for Arsenal in this season due to a broken fibula which he sustained back in September of 2015 and this forced the player to undergo a surgery. When the surgery was over, the medical staff of Arsenal stated that Wilshere would be out of action for 3 months but it has now been revealed that the English player will stay even longer away from the pitch.

When Arsene Wenger was asked about the condition of Wilshere, the French manager replied by saying: “If you ask me if he will be fit before the end of December, no chance’’.

Wilshere is now expected to make a return to the pitch in February of 2016 but this date could be extended even further if the Englishman receives other setbacks.

However, even with the extensively long period of time that Jack Wilshere has stayed out of the playing grounds it’s rumored that the player is still a hugely important player for Arsene Wenger and that Arsenal will be offering Wilshere a new contract that is going to keep the player at least until 2021.

Manchester City appeared to be interested in signing Jack Wilshere during the previous summer transfer window but Wenger wants to keep hold of him for a few more years and this is one of the main reasons of why a contract extension is turning out to be a likely event that can happen in the near future even though it’s for a player that hasn’t played a single minute in a competitive match for Arsenal in this season so far.
