Arsenal and Bournemouth have both confirmed that Jack Wilshere will miss the final month of the season with a hairline fracture in his leg.
The idea of sending Wilshere on loan to Bournemouth was to help him get matches and either rebuild his value for a sale or see if he could progress toward being an integral member of the Arsenal first team. For most of the season, Wilshere was moving strongly toward those goals. Given the role of his lengthy injury history in derailing his career at Arsenal leading up to his loan move, this injury may serve to undo much of the good that serving most of the season as an effective starter has done. Will a mid-table club with a limited transfer budget really pony up a significant transfer fee for a player with yet another injury? Could Arsenal justify counting on him as a key cog for next season or signing him to a contract extension given his propensity to be out injured? What happens next with Wilshere was always going to be fascinating but this latest injury just adds an additional layer of complexity what what was already a pretty complex situation.
