Wilshere was told he could leave Arsenal last summer

Stefan de Vrij

The 26-year-old spent last season on loan with Bournemouth and has since returned to the Gunners in arguably his best physical form since season 2013/14, having already made 31 appearances to date.

JACK WILSHERE has withdrawn from England's squad to play Holland and Italy with a fresh injury setback - but Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate said it is "nothing too serious".

The Mirror reports that both Liverpool and Manchester City are watching Jack Wilshere's situation closely and would be willing to go to war for the midfielder's signature. "There's more young players, there's more of a group I think and there's more of a plan towards the future".

Struggling for fitness and game-time, Wilshere had not represented his country since the excruciating Euro 2016 last-16 exit to Iceland and was staring down the barrel at Arsenal.

It's a big blow for his hopes of going to the World Cup but he could still make it.

The Gunners have offered Wilshere a new deal to extend his stay at Arsenal beyond this season.




"I just wanted to focus on getting back in the Arsenal team and then, hopefully, getting back here with England".

Arsenal are now sixth in the Premier League, 13 points off the top four. His contract is set to expire at the end of the season, meaning he could become a free agent while at the World Cup.

"Ideally, yes, I want it sorted as soon as possible".

The England midfielder is now back in the England squad which will play friendlies against Italy and Netherlands.

"Hopefully, I'll get the chance this week or next week to put the Three Lions shirt back on again". He looks like he's had a real go off the field, with his diet and extra training, to overcome his injury problems and prove what a great player he is. "So a fit Jack always goes to Russian Federation for me".
