Trabzonspor chief Muharrem Usta has revealed that the Turkish club held talks to sign Arsenal and England midfielder Jack Wilshere in the summer transfer window.
The midfielder is surplus to requirements at the north London club and was expected to move on this summer. However, despite reported interest from a number of clubs in the midfielder, the injury-prone star remained at the club.
It seems Turkey was a possible destination, with Usta telling Turkish-Football: “I held direct talks with Jack Wilshere,”
“We wanted him on loan and were close to a deal but the move stalled at the last moment.”
