Juventus set sights on Jack Wilshere

Nowadays there aren’t many players who fully come to represent one club through and through, and the likes of Steven Gerrard and Francesco Totti are becoming more and more scarce. Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere is perhaps a candidate for that such badge, as he is in his eight season with the North London club.

The fairytale story may be set to end however, according to the Mirror, as Italian super club Juventus have reportedly enquired about the midfielder’s availability. One could have expected the enquiry to mean very little, but reports suggest that Arsenal have asked Wilshere to re-sign for lower wages, a decision which could become a catalyst for conflict.

The England international has struggled with injury throughout his career, but has been a valuable member of Arsene Wenger’s midfield whenever he has been available. In recent seasons however his game time has diminished, and he has started just nine league games this season.

With less minutes than he must want, and the prospect of lower wages, a change of scenery could become more appealing for Wilshere, especially given the success of Theo Walcott, who was in a similar boat, at new club Everton.
