Reports: Arsenal Allow Jack Wilshere To Leave On Loan Before Transfer Window Closes

Arsenal have made a big call to allow Jack Wilshere to leave the club on loan in pursuit of first-team football.

Wilshere has been limited to two substitute appearances for the Gunners this season after having his pre-season impinged by his troublesome ankles/knees/entire lower body for the umpteenth time.

The 24-year-old midfielder made three appearances for England at Euro 2016 but looked far from full fitness, having only made one Premier League start due to injury the season prior.

Perhaps a little strange is Arsenal only giving themselves 48 hours to find a suitor for Wilshere, with the transfer deadline passing at 11pm on Wednesday evening.

For the record, Valencia and Juventus are being mentioned in passing.

Could be interesting, this one – right up until the point he breaks down again and all burgeoning optimism is immediately rendered moot again.
