Shock as Gunners ready to let England international leave.
Arsenal are understood to be considering the future of midfielder Jack Wilshere this January, with Arsene Wenger ready to let the England international leave for the right price.
Wilshere has not been in the best of form of late, with the 22-year-old receiving plenty of criticism from all quarters after failing to live up to the immense potential seen in him during his days as a youngster.
Having first broke onto the scene as a 16-year-old back in the 2008/09 season, Wilshere has not progressed as hoped, with injuries and other factors seemingly halting his progress.
Used in a variety of different positions in Arsene Wenger’s side, it is not clear if Wilshere truly specialises in any of them, and it now looks as though he will be allowed to make way as the Gunners eye a more experienced and expert defensive midfielder.
Real Madrid star Sami Khedira is widely believed to be the club’s top target for the January transfer window after he was also linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium for much of the summer, and his considerable wages may mean player sales are needed.
An offer of around £15m may be enough for Arsenal to consider letting Wilshere go, and it is thought that the likes of Aston Villa, West Ham United and Sunderland could be among those interested if he does become available.
