Former Gunner Jack Wilshere has revealed he would be interested in returning to Arsenal, following what appears to have been an invitation from manager Mikel Arteta.

“He is someone that I know who I shared the dressing room with,” Arteta said. “Someone who is so loved around the club with every person here and our doors are always open.”

“I should never have left Arsenal” – Jack Wilshere 0

Jack Wilshere was once one of the most promising youngsters at Arsenal. Having made his senior debut at the age of 16, he went on to produce some truly fantastic performances for the club. Now, the midfielder finds himself without a club, and without even an offer on his table until a few hours ago.

Wondering how it had come to this, The Athletic journalist David Ornstein did an insightful interview with the former England international to dig into the issues currently holding his career at its lowest ebb. It should be said that Wilshere has reportedly been offered to play for League One side Wigan in the aftermath of the interview.

In yesterday’s article, I talked about Unai Emery getting the balance right in his selection choices for Europa League games. On Thursday night, the Spaniard got his team selection spot on, as the Gunners recorded a comfortable 3-0 win against Vorskla in Kiev.

The game was a good showcase for some of Arsenal’s youngsters to impress, as Emile Smith-Rowe and Joe Willock both got on the scoresheet for the Gunners in a comfortable victory.

On Saturday afternoon, Arsenal host West Ham at the Emirates Stadium, as the Gunners look to pick up their first league win of the campaign.

Unai Emery’s side will be looking to kick-start their Premier League campaign back on track after losing their opening games against Manchester City and Chelsea respectively. In fact, the Gunners have lost three of their last four Premier League outings.

Despite those negatives, Arsenal’s recent home record in the Premier League is still strong, as the City defeat ended a five-game winning run on home soil. A key to that recent good run of form has been the Gunners firepower, as Arsenal have now scored at least two goals in seven of the last nine games.

According to reports from Sky Sports, Arsenal are still in negotiations with Wales international midfielder Aaron Ramsey over a new deal. The 27-year-old has just one year left on his current contract with the North London club.

Spanish boss Unai Emery is understandably keen for the Gunners to tie down the midfielder on a long-term contract. The Spaniard has stated that Ramsey is an important player to the club.

Arsenal has previous with this sort of situation

Arsenal has a long history of players leaving their contract to expire or run to the last few months so that they get a bigger packet at Arsenal, or move on in a cut-price deal.

The long-running Jack Wilshere saga has finally come to an end, as the Englishman has signed on the dotted line for West Ham United. The Premier League outfit have been seeking Wilshere’s signature for a long time now, even going back to before his recent contract issues. When Unai Emery made it painfully obvious that Jack wouldn’t be featuring in his plans for the 2018/19 campaign he had no choice but to look elsewhere, and as it turns out, he didn’t need to look too far across London in order to find his new home.

Chambers set for new deal as Arsenal reveal released list 0

Arsenal have made their list of players released public on Friday, and among others, it contains the names of Per Mertesacker, Santi Cazorla and Jack Wilshere.

Mertesacker has retired from playing professional football at a relatively disappointing age of 33. However, the former Germany international has been plagued with injuries and his decision to stop playing is certainly not without reason. He made as little as 12 appearances for Arsenal last season, while in 2016/17 he took to the pitch only twice.

Wilshere could be West Ham bound 0

Ever since Jack Wilshere confirmed that he was going to be leaving Arsenal Football Club in search of something new, many people have been left to wonder where on earth he’s going to end up next. The midfielder spent so much of his life on the books with the Gunners that the idea of him going somewhere else just feels a little bit wrong. Beyond that, however, the thought of him jumping across London to one of the club’s local rivals is absolutely sickening.

Arsenal target set to leave Sampdoria 0

Posted on June 24, 2018 by David Nugent

Sampdoria president Massimo Ferrero has confirmed that Arsenal’s reported transfer target Lucas Torreira has left the club. The news comes as speculation mounts about the Gunners completing the £26.4million signing of the Uruguayan midfielder.

Ferrero told Italian broadcaster TMW: “Torreira has left for €30million. I bought him from Pescara when no-one believed [in his ability]. We bet and we won, paying just €3million. The money that comes in is used to keep the club going.”

Torreira should be an excellent addition

Torreira is a highly-rated young central midfielder, who is currently at the World Cup with Uruguay in Russia. The 22-year-old has been an almost ever-present for a solid Sampdoria side in recent seasons.

Emery has ‘plan in place’ for Ramsey 0

Posted on June 21, 2018 by Harry Kettle

While many fans are still mourning Jack Wilshere’s departure from Arsenal Football Club, manager Unai Emery has already moved onto the next phase of his plan to revolutionise the way in which the Gunners play football. That may sound a little bit overdramatic, but at the end of the day, the Spaniard has already made a series of changes that others would’ve taken months upon months to implement.

Anyway, regarding the subject matter of this article, it turns out that Emery values Welshman Aaron Ramsey a little bit more than we might’ve originally thought. He is hoping and expecting him to sign a new long-term deal with the club and moving forward, it seems as if he’ll be an integral part of the Gunners’ operation in the middle of the park.
