Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Danny Murphy explained, when he co-hosted the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast Show for talkSPORT, he feels there could come a point where Jack Wilshere decides he wants to leave Arsenal.
Murphy has suggested that Wilshere’s character makes him likely to start questioning the Gunners if he’s fit but not starting frequently under Arsene Wenger next season.
“I think there will come a point that if he’s fit and he stays fit he’ll want to (leave Arsenal) because he’s that type of player (wants to play every week),” he said on talkSPORT.
“He’s one who has that hunger and desire, he’s not going to be happy sitting on the bench – When he got fit towards the end of the season, he didn’t start every game but that was probably Wenger being cautious.”
Who might buy him?
The Manchester Evening News has reported that Manchester City consider Wilshere a target as Manuel Pellegrini looks at ways he can improve his squad.
Manchester City would be a very difficult club for the player to say no to, but a deal is questionable considering Arsenal are a direct rival to Pellegrini’s team.
The Daily Mail has also thrown a spanner into the world by suggesting that Arsenal could be about to offer Wilshere a new contract to stay at the club.
Wilshere wants to start: What are his chances?
It’s difficult for Arsene Wenger because central midfield is a heavily congested area of the Arsenal squad.
Unless he uses a central player slightly off to one side, it could be difficult for Wilshere to force his way into the team.
Francis Coquelin, Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Ozil, Santi Cazorla, Tomas Rosicky and more can all play in central positions.
Something has to give.
