Jack Wilshere may leave Arsenal in January, with an eye on earning a place in England’s World Cup squad by attaining regular playing time with a Premier League side.
The midfielder is seriously considering a move away from the club in a bid to get back into the England squad ahead of this summer’s World Cup.
That’s according to an exclusive from the Times, who report that West Ham and Crystal Palace could be potential destinations for Wilshere.
The report claims that those close to the 25-year-old insist he’s been fit enough to play games since the start of the season, and that he’s worried he won’t get enough of a look-in at Arsenal this season.
Arsene Wenger would beg to differ, as he’s seen enough Wilshere injuries to know he needs building up again and can’t just be thrown into Premier League action straight away.
Arsenal’s academy graduate has started games in the Carabao Cup and the Europa League, but the subs bench is the closest he’s come to a Premier League game so far.
Calls for Wilshere to return to the England set-up have only gotten louder after their recent uninspiring performances against Slovenia and Lithuania.
However, England manager Gareth Southgate has warned Wilshere that he’ll need to be playing at a good level to be considered for selection.
