Jack Wilshere expects to be fit in time for the new Premier League season.

  • Wilshere is recovering from a leg fracture suffered in April
  • He believes he’ll be ready in time for the new season
  • Discussions over a new contract have yet to begin

Wilshere had managed to avoid injuries while on loan at Bournemouth until a game against Tottenham in April, where he suffered a leg fracture.

While the injury has ruled him out of Arsenal’s tour of Australia and China, Wilshere reportedly believes that he’ll be fit in time for the Community Shield against Chelsea on August 6th.

There are, though, several doubts about his future at Arsenal. Wilshere has a year left on his current deal and has yet to be offered a new one by Arsenal.

This has led to speculation about him leaving the club, but interest is currently low as clubs are wary of his injury record. Sampdoria have emerged as the latest side to be interested in him with reports from Italy claiming they will/have/are considering an £8.9m bid.

He could remain at Arsenal throughout the final year of his contract, but may struggle for first team minutes.
