Turkish club Antalyaspor have confirmed their approach for Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere this summer.
Wilshere’s future has been the subject of much debate over the summer. Although he’s back training at the club, he hasn’t made any public show of commitment to Arsenal and only has a year left on his current deal.
Swansea, Sampdoria and West Ham United have been linked, but Antalyaspor are one of the first to confirm that they’re after the player. Club president Ali Safak Ozturk said: “We made an enquiry and are in talks but Arsenal want a lot for Wilshere. It will be a difficult move to pull off,” reports the Express.
It’s no surprise Arsenal would want a bigger fee for Jack than a club like Antalyaspor would be hoping to pay, given the England international is still only 25 and has long been considered a big prospect if he can stay fit. Arsenal will certainly be wary of giving away another talented player for little money after losing Wojciech Szczesny to Juventus for around £10m.
