Is Wilshere’s Arsenal career coming to an end?
Jack Wilshere’s Premier League season is over as Bournemouth midfielder sustained a broken leg against Tottenham.
On loan from Arsenal, the England international has been doing rather well in an injury-free spell at Bournemouth over the course of the season, making 27 appearances for the Cherries, but his stay at Dean Court has been cut short as Wilshere is now expected to return to Arsenal to begin his rehabilitation process.
The 25-year-old midfielder is set for another lengthy lay-off for a similar injury he sustained just before the 2015/16 season, when a broken leg kept his out for the majority of the campaign.
Jack Wilshere’s entire career thus far has been marred by numerous injuries which prevented the England international from realizing his full potential.
The Arsenal academy product was expected to gain first-team playing time at Bournemouth before returning to Arsenal as a stronger and fitter player, but his hopes of making it back into the Arsenal line-up have been given another huge blow.
Wilshere looked like he might have escaped a serious injury initially, as the X-ray on Sunday showed no cracks in his left fibula. However, a CT scan performed on Monday revealed his left leg got broken with a hairline fracture appearing after all.
English midfielder is set to see a specialist over the next couple of days, but at this point it has been confirmed that his Premier League season is very much over.
The latest injury set-back comes at a very bad time for Wilshere who is about to enter contract negotiations with Arsenal, given the fact his current deal is running until the end of the season.
