International midfielder tipped for imminent Arsenal return

Posted by

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere is on the brink of a return to Arsene Wenger‘s first team, according to reports.

The Mirror note that the 24-year-old featured for the Gunners’ U-21 side for 90 minutes in their bout against Swansea City on Thursday, as he continues his comeback trail.

Wilshere has missed the entirety of the campaign to date after injuring himself at the beginning of the season, but having returned to first-team training, he is steadily improving his match fitness with showings for the North London giants’ youth team.

The tabloid speculate that Wilshere may feature again for Arsenal’s U-21s in their upcoming match against West Bromwich Albion on Monday, and that it’s not impossible he could follow that up by representing the Gunners against the Baggies in their Premier League match three days later.

While Wilshere could yet provide a boost to Arsenal’s season, as Wenger’s side look to keep their faint title hopes alive, his return will also be good news for England coach Roy Hodgson.

While it would represent a gamble to take the 24-year-old along to the European Championships in France this summer, a fit Wilshere possesses the kind of technical prowess and passing ability to be a key asset for the Three Lions this summer.
