Arsenal set asking price for Wilshere 0

Posted on July 20, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

According to the Daily Star, Arsenal are willing to sell midfielder Jack Wilshere this summer, but only for the right price. The English international has been linked with a move away from the Emirates Stadium as a result of a lack of playing time, and West Ham United are reportedly leading the race for his signature.

Wilshere has been rated at £20m by Arsenal but has been subject of a £6.5m bid from Italian Serie A side Sampdoria, which is believed to have been rejected. The playmaker is out of contract next summer so Arsenal will be forced to either sell him or extend his stay.

According to the Daily Mail, Arsenal are looking to offload a number of players in order to up their bid for Monaco winger Thomas Lemar. The report suggests that the French champions want a fee close to £80million for the youngster.

Always the economist Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is attempting to raise the funds by selling players, including the likes of Lucas Perez, Theo Walcott, Wojciech Szczesny, Jack Wilshere and Kieran Gibbs.

A club-record fee

Arsenal have already broken their club transfer record to sign striker Alexandre Lacazette for a fee of around £52million. However, it seems that Monaco are playing hardball over Lemar and the Gunners would need to break their transfer record to sign the youngster.

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

Barkley only has one year left in his current deal with the Toffees and is reportedly unsure over his future with the club.

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.
