Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere must leave the club if he is to make England’s World Cup squad, according to former-Watford Striker Odion Ighalo.

The Gunners fell to a hugely disappointing 3-1 defeat at the hands of Manchester City in their last Premier League game as they slipped further off the top of the table.

Indeed, the London side are already 12 points short of the league leaders, while they are now three points short of Chelsea in fourth-place.

With their title ambitions in tatters, it is vital that they beat Tottenham in their next game, otherwise they will fall even further behind the top four.

According to the Daily Mail, Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere is considering leaving north London in January in search of first-team football.

The report claims that Wilshere is desperate to play regular first-team football to improve his chances of going to next year’s World Cup. Regular first-team action in the Premier League seems unlikely at the moment for the midfielder.

Unlikely to have a future at Arsenal

Wilshere will have just six months left on his contract at Arsenal in January. It is unclear whether he will be offered a new deal in north London. The fact that he has yet to make an appearance in the Premier League suggests that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger does not believe the midfielder is in his long-term plans.

Ahead of Thursday’s Europa League trip to face BATE Borisov, manager Arsene Wenger has admitted his young players are fighting for their Arsenal future, reports the Express.

The Gunners boss has named a young side to travel to Belarus, with the likes of Vlad Dragomir and Charlie Gilmour being surprise selections, and has revealed this could be the only chance many of the youngsters will get to impress at senior level.

“This is the kind of job you do not get 10 opportunities to play for Arsenal. When you get it, even if they only get 20 minutes, you have to convince people you have the qualities to do it and you have the courage to play and show your qualities,” said Wenger.

According to Calciomercato via talkSPORT, Inter Milan have passed down the chance to sign Arsenal and Germany playmaker Mesut Ozil. The Serie A outfit were linked with a part exchange move that would see Joao Mario heading to the Emirates, but it now seems Inter will pursue other targets.

Ozil is in the last year of his contract with Arsenal, having so far rejected an extension. The 28-year-old had some fleeting interest in his signature over the summer, but suitors failed to match his £40m price tag and lofty wage demands.
