Former Arsenal midfielder believes Jack Wilshere’s fate was sealed when he joined Bournemouth on a season long loan last summer.

Talking to TalkSport, the ex player believes that if the 25 year old had been part of manager Arsene Wenger’s first team plans, he would have sent the England international out on loan for three months rather than a year:

“I don’t think he was in ’s plans. If you send someone on loan, you send them on loan for three months. If he’d have gone to Bournemouth for three months and set it alight and scored eight goals in three months, then you could call him back. But as soon as he sent him there for a year, he was never playing for Arsenal again.

Multiple reports have suggested that will not be offered a new deal, and will be allowed to leave the before the end of August. He still hasn’t recovered from the broken leg he sustained whilst playing for Bournemouth at the back end of last season.

does not have a wealth of attacking central midfielders at his disposal, but with only having one year left on his contract, boss is probably keen on a sale to prevent the player leaving on a free next year.
