Maybe it is time for Jack Wilshere to leave Arsenal permanently 0

Posted on July 15, 2017 by David Nugent

The Daily Mail website was running a story about Sampdoria bidding £9million to sign Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere this summer. However, the Italian club are worried they may not be able to meet the Gunners financial demands.

The midfielder has just 12 months left on his contract in north London. It would not be a major surprise if he leaves the club.

He spent last season on loan at Bournemouth and made 27 appearances before unsurprisingly his season was cut short through injury. In reality, he failed to really shine for the Cherries, although he did produce a few decent performances

According to bookmakers William Hill via the Daily Mirror, they have received massive bets on the possibility of Chelsea captain John Terry joining Arsenal this summer. The bets have all supposedly come from the Reading area, but the bookmakers do not really consider the move a realistic one.

However, it begs the question is it really complete out of the realms of reality that Terry could join the Gunners in the summer?

Bad news for Arsenal as Jack Wilshere suffers broken leg 0

Posted on April 19, 2017 by Milos Markovic

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.

Arsenal have always been a team renowned for their defensive qualities. The old song ‘1-0 to the Arsenal’ was spawn from the Gunners defence being watertight.

Tuesday night’s 3-3 draw at Bournemouth may well be remembered for the Gunners superb comeback from three goals down. However, we must not forget that Arsene Wenger’s side looked very shaky at the back.

A very disappointing defensive display                              

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has used tiredness as an excuse for the team’s disappointing display at Bournemouth. However, the Cherries also played at the weekend, albeit it 24 hours before the Gunners.

Arsenal make the trip to the south coast to face Bournemouth on Tuesday night, as the Gunners look to maintain momentum in their pursuit of league leaders Chelsea.

Bournemouth have endured mixed fortunes this season, but last time out hammered crisis club Swansea 3-0 at the Liberty Stadium. The Cherries secured a comfortable victory courtesy of goals from Benik Afobe, Ryan Fraser and Joshua King.

The win was much-needed for the Cherries, as the south coast side had lost three of their previous four games in the league and looked to be drifting down the table. If the Cherries record a win in this clash and results go their way the Cherries could be as high as seventh by the end of gameweek 20.

Does Arsenal rely too much on Alexis Sanchez? 0

Arsenal recorded a 3-1 victory over Bournemouth on Sunday afternoon at the Emirates Stadium. The game marked a return to form of Chilean star Alexis Sanchez, as he bagged a brace against the Cherries.

Sanchez had struggled to make an impact in recent Gunners games, probably affected by fatigue and hampered by his recent injury problem.

Back to form with a bang

For me, Alexis Sanchez is Arsenal’s most influential players and when he is on form there are few better players than the Chilean in the Premier League. Against Bournemouth he looked to be back to his energetic best and was a constant thorn in the Cherries defenders sides.

Arsenal host Bournemouth at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday afternoon as the Gunners look to return to winning ways.

United looked set to record the victory thanks to a strike from Juan Mata. However, Gunners substitute Olivier Giroud popped up to score a vital equaliser on 89 minutes to give the side from north London a share of the points.

Arsenal welcome AFC Bournemouth to the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon, in a game that should see the home side come out of top to return to winning ways after a mini slump in recent weeks. The Gunners have failed to win four of their last six, but face a Bournemouth side struggling for goals on the road and consistency which could see Arsene Wenger’s men bouncing back.
