He is an Arsenal youth product and a footballer who’s been around the club for full 16 years, but is jack Wilshere’s Arsenal career nearing its end?

It’s a question that keeps popping ahead of every transfer window.

This recurring issue once again hit the surface just at the time when the injury-plagued star got back to full fitness and back into Arsenal squad.

Wilshere completed full 90 minutes in the Carabao Cup 1-0 victory over Doncaster and made 23 minutes on the pitch in a 3-1 Europa League win over FC Koln before that.

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere is said to be favouring a move to West Ham if he is to leave the Emirates this summer.

The England international midfielder Jack Wilshere faces uncertain future at Arsenal. Having spent last season on loan at Bournemouth, Wilshere returned to Arsenal on the back of yet another injury and looks set to be given a free pass to leave the club this summer.

Wilshere still has a year left in his Arsenal deal and earlier reports claimed he could be available for transfer for paltry £9 million although the Gunners are hoping to sell him for more lucrative £20 million.

It seems that Arsenal are in fact close to the signing of Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette, as the French clubs president Jean-Michel Aulas has told French media outlet Le Progres : “Alexandre Lacazette’s transfer to Arsenal could be actioned within the next day or two.

“The figure reported by the English media of around €67m (including €12m in add-ons) is impossible and not realistic. Arsenal’s first offer was around €45m, the transfer will be concluded in the range of €45m to €50m.”

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has played down talk of Olivier Giroud leaving the club this summer and says the centre-forward is vital ahead of the new season. Giroud, who admitted frustration at a lack of playing time in 2016/17, has been linked with West Ham United and Ligue 1 giants Olympique Marseilles in recent weeks, but Wenger said he’s not leaving.

“It has been a frustrating season for him because he has not played a lot. And when he has played well, he has not always played the next match. He has won us a lot of points when he has come on because he has scored lots of times. He has qualities that our team need,” revealed the Arsenal manager, as quoted by the Mirror.

Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic has been linked with a possible move to Arsenal, according to reports from the Italian media.

Arsenal have been perennial qualifiers for the Champions League during Arsene Wenger’s reign as boss. No English team has qualified for the competition as consistently as Arsenal in the last two decades.

However, those qualifications for Europe’s elite competition have not always been easy. There have been close calls, where the Gunners have looked like missing out on the Champions League.

This season there are major doubts about the Gunners chances of making the top-four this season. The midweek results may just have enhanced their chances.

The Hammers hit back with their own attack on nine minutes. Manuel Lanzini hit a free-kick from the edge of the penalty area that missed the target by a yard. A few minutes later the Hammers had another attempt on the Arsenal goal. Mark Noble found some space just inside the area and saw his go just wide of the left-hand post.

Arsenal host West Ham on Wednesday night at the Emirates Stadium, as the Gunners look to enhance their chances of finishing in the Premier League’s top-four this season.

The Gunners have drifted down to sixth in the Premier League table and seven points off fourth spot. Arsene Wenger’s side twice came back from behind to draw 2-2 with Manchester City last time out. However, it was another unconvincing display from the team from north London.

Arsenal talking to Dimitri Payet representatives 1

Posted on January 18, 2017 by David Nugent

According to the Metro (yes, I know!), Arsenal have held talks with the representatives of West Ham playmaker Dimitri Payet to establish if the French star would be interested in moving to the Emirates Stadium.

The same report suggests Manchester United have also made similar enquiries about Payet’s availability, although Payet moving to another Premier League club seems unlikely.

Payet is homesick in London

Payet being spotted in an Arsenal or United shirt anytime soon looks highly unlucky at the moment. The 29-year-old recently told West Ham that he wanted to leave and would not play for the Hammers again.
