Zenit St. Petersburg and Real Betis have enquired about Jack Wilshere.
Wilshere could be about to leave the club after Arsenal received enquiries today from two foreign clubs. According to David Woods of the Daily Star, Zenit and Betis have asked about the midfielder.

Wilshere looked set to stay at Arsenal after a lack of teams appeared willing to meet the Gunners’ asking price. West Ham, Sampdoria and Antalyspor have all expressed an interest at various points in the summer, but none of them have come forward with a concrete offer.
West Ham were said to not be looking at midfielders but could make a late offer after their poor start to the season. Zenit may have a hard time convincing Wilshere to move to Russia, while Betis have had a very busy summer and may struggle to raise the funds to buy him, I feel.
The Spanish transfer window doesn’t close until Friday, so there would still be time to do a deal even after the English window closes tonight. Wilshere has a year left on his current Arsenal contract.
