Jack Wilshere discusses what he believes is his best role at Arsenal

Jack Wilshere

The midfielder is currently battling to be fit after his latest injury.

Jack Wilshere has held many conversations about what is his best role with Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, he has told Fletch and Sav.

At times he has been asked to play as a number 10 for Arsenal, while also being part of a midfield two behind Mesut Ozil in recent years.

Meanwhile for England he has often been played as a sole defensive midfielder, with Three Lions coach Roy Hodgson using him to help dictate the play from deep in midfield.

And when asked what he believes is his best role, Wilshere admits he is not sure because of him changing regularly for club and country.

With England I play as the one on my own, and I enjoy that,” he told Fletch and Sav.

“But with Arsenal we don’t play that system, we play with two and I feel I can play that [also].”

“It’s down to the boss, we’ve had many conversations about it. The boss sees me more as an attacking player, while the England boss sees me as a holding player.”

When Wilshere is back and competing for a first-team place, it will certainly be interesting to see what role he does take up in future.

Arsenal’s midfield is a packed one to say the least, with Francis Coquelin taking one spot in the midfield two and the likes of Aaron Ramsey, Santi Cazorla and Mohamed Elneny now fighting for the place alongside him.

Cazorla is arguably first choice of that trio, but Ramsey has impressed in his absence and is not likely to be keen to return to the wing on his return.

That means competition is fierce, and Wilshere may find himself having to take on a new role once again when he is fully fit.
