Eddie Howe has admitted he would ‘love’ to sign Jack on a permanent deal at Bournemouth, but he has not held talks with Arsenal over a proposed as of yet.

Arsene allowed the international, 25, to join the Cherries on a season-long loan last summer in search of first-team football and has been in impressive form for Howe’s side thus far.

’s deal at expires in summer 2018 and the midfielder has recently stated that he will make a decision on his Arsenal future at the end of the season.

But when asked about the possibility of signing Wilshere on a permanent deal this summer, Howe said:

“We would love that to happen.

“I can’t rate Jack enough as a footballer, as a person, how he has come into the team and what he has delivered for us, but there has been no discussion with Arsenal.

“As I see it, Jack is on loan for the season and then we will look at it and Jack will look at it.”

has previously claimed that WILL be offered a new deal to remain at Arsenal, but with so many midfield options at already and the uncertainty of regular first-team football at Arsenal, Wishere may decide to progress with his career elsewhere – he will not be short of suitors, with AC and Roma reportedly keen on his services before he joined Bournemouth.
