Eddie Howe has finalized a season-long loan for Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere.
This is a huge deal for the Cherries. If Wilshere can stay healthy then he's a massive improvement over anyone that the Cherries currently have in midfield. He could conceivably boost the performances of Callum Wilson, Jordan Ibe and Josh King as well as producing strong statistics of his own. Aug 31 - 4:48 PM

There hasn't been any confirmation of a deal from either side but reports have Jack Wilshere leaning toward a loan deal with Bournemouth over Crystal Palace or Roma.

The Cherries need a creative force in the center of the park and the word is that Eddie Howe has impressed Jack Wilshere to the point that he is leaning toward joining the south coast club over a variety of other suitors. Wilshere will certainly play as often as he is fit if he signs on with the Cherries and will certainly feel the pressure of trying to keep them out of the relegation battle. His expectations for playing time and productivity go up exponentially if this deal goes through although the ever-present risk of injury will still remain with Wilshere.

With the Arsenal midfield incredibly crowded, Jack Wilshere may leave for the season on loan.

The conversation seems to be at the general level right now as in "Arsenal have told Jack Wilshere he can go out on loan" rather than there being a ton of specifics. Roma has been mentioned as having some interest but definitely nothing concrete. If Wilshere heads down the table in the Premier League then he could be a valuable addition to a fantasy squad in formats with peripheral stats. Jumping too early could be a mistake though as he could just as easily end up outside of the Premier League.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger confirmed that midfielder Jack Wilshere will not be ready for the club's season opener on Sunday.

Said Wenger in his pre-match press conference: "Jack is doing well, but he will be short for Sunday. He is back in training but will not be completely ready for Sunday." The 24-year-old looks to still be recovering from the aftereffects of a broken leg that caused him to miss most of last season, although the midfielder was a part of England's Euro 2016 team this summer. While he has returned to training, Wenger didn't want to risk him against Liverpool this weekend with plenty of options. Expect Granit Xhaka to make his Premier League debut with a start in central midfield.

Jack Wilshere has been omitted from the Arsenal squad travelling to Scandinavia this weekend because of injury.

Following the win over Chivas last Sunday, manager Arsène Wenger confirmed Wilshere has "a slight patella problem" although "he should be with us on tour." However, when the 25-man squad was announced on Thursday afternoon, there was no place for the Arsenal midfielder. Alexis Sanchez and Aaron Ramsey have been included as Wenger looks to fast track their return to fitness but Laurent Koscielny, Olivier Giroud and Mesut Ozil won’t be back in full training until next week. Gabriel Paulista is over his recent bout of tonsillitis leaving Rob Holding and Callum Chambers to fight it out to see who partners the Brazilian in the heart of the Gunners defence.

A familiar face returns to the Arsenal treatment room as Arsène Wenger confirms Jack Wilshere picked up a "slight" injury during Friday night’s 2-1 win over the MLS All-Star side in San Jose.

Wilshere started the match at the Avaya Stadium, his first domestic involvement of the summer, but he was replaced at half-time. Post-match there was no mention of any problems, however, the England international was omitted from the squad which faced Chivas 48 hours later and Wenger had this to say: "Jack has a slight problem with his knee. He should come back quickly, maybe next week. It’s a slight patella problem but I think he should be with us on tour on Thursday." And the Gunners have been dealt a further blow with the news that Santi Cazorla is likely to miss the start of the season due to concerns over his conditioning: "He’s a bit behind the others physically but I think he will be alright, maybe not on August 15th, but at the end of August."

Jack Wilshere will, in all likelihood, be in the squad for Arsenal's Week 35 match at the Stadium of Light but don't expect a lot of minutes.

Frankly, regardless of what might be best for the player and his faint hopes of representing England in the Euros this summer, Arsenal can't afford to start Jack Wilshere on Sunday. He wouldn't be a presumptive starter even if he'd been healthy all season so the notion that he might get a start as Arsenal scratch and claw to finish in the Champions League places seems far-fetched. Look for Wilshere to maybe get 20 to 30 minutes if Arsenal are leading comfortably.

Jack Wilshere came through last Friday's U21 match unscathed and will play with the U21s again today as he looks to return from a lengthy injury layoff.

With two matches coming up on Sunday and Thursday, Jack Wilshere coming through a second U21 match with his health intact might signal an opportunity to participate with the first team in match week 34. It is reasonable to expect that Wilshere will be on the bench for Sunday's match with Crystal Palace with a start at least possible against West Brom on Thursday. None of this is certain with Mohamed Elneny playing well in holding midfield but with three matches in 7 days, Wenger might want to give the Egyptian a break while easing Wilshere back into the line-up.
Apr 14 - 10:28 AM

As part of the final stage of his return from a broken leg, Jack Wilshere will turn out for the Arsenal U21 squad on Friday.

As you might imagine, Wilshere is being brought back slowly and the chances of him playing for the U21s on Friday and then for the first team on Saturday are non-existent. More likely, if Wilshere comes through the youth match on Friday in good shape then he will be in contention to participate in Week 34 at the Emirates against Crystal Palace. With three matches in eight days between the 17th and the 24th Wilshere seems likely to see at least one start.

Arsene Wenger confirms Jack Wilshere has stepped up his recovery from a fibula fracture with the Arsenal midfielder targeting a return after the international break.

The Gunners boss revealed before Sundays’ FA Cup clash with Watford: "Wilshere is doing well. He was out running on Friday and he is very positive," Wenger said. "I saw him run, it looked quite impressive. His power is back, he doesn’t look to be holding back and that is good news. If he can continue that now I believe he is out of the tunnel." The return of the 24-year-old will provide a timely boost for both club and country although Wilshere will not be rushed back into first team action. However, his availability for Arsenal is likely to ensure the midfielder will be at this summers’ European Championships in France: "I think his past performances merit a place in the squad," said Three Lions coach Roy Hodgson recently.

Jack Wilshere is targeting a return to action in the second leg of the Champions League clash with Barcelona at the Nou Camp in March.

Wilshere was speaking to BT Sport on Saturday ahead of his sides’ FA Cup 5th round tie against Hull City at the Emirates: "It is possible, I mean it’s difficult to get back," replied the 24-year-old to claims by Arsene Wenger that he could return within 3-4 weeks. "I’m different from when I was 19, it takes a little bit more time. But I’m training and running and hopefully I will be back. I’m not sure how long it’s going to take because I’ve only been doing ball work for about a week. I probably need a game in the under-21s and I’ll be ready." With time running out, Wilshere must remain on schedule to keep his slender chances of playing in this summers’ European Championships with England in Paris.

Arsene Wenger has confirmed that midfielder Jack Wilshere will not be ready for a return to action until March at the earliest.

Speaking ahead of Saturdays’ FA Cup tie against Burnley, the Arsenal boss revealed that the injury plagued 24-year-old has only just started running: "Once you move outside, from the first day, you count six weeks to be competitive," Wenger said. "To build up the stamina, the intensity. You count six weeks to be ready fitness wise." The news leaves Wilshere with less than two-months to prove his fitness ahead of this summers’ European Championships in France, with a place in the England squad looking increasingly unlikely. Elsewhere, the Gunners can boast a pretty healthy group – Santi Cazorla is only other player not involved in training following the return of Danny Welbeck this week.

Arsenal envisioned a return for Jack Wilshere after the international break following tests which revealed a hairline fracture of the fibula back in August.

However ahead of last weekends’ clash v Stoke City Arsene Wenger revealed Wilshere would not be ready because of what he referred to as "a little setback." The specifics and nature of the latest problem were unknown at the time but it has since been revealed that the injury is not healing as expected. The midfielder will require surgery to insert a plate into his leg to help stabilise the bone and to ensure it heals in the correct position. Although there is no definitive timeline on Wilshere’s return early reports suggest a comeback around Christmas along with team mate Tomas Rosicky. Danny Welbeck is another long-term absentee [knee] and the England international should be back in early 2016.

The news always seems to be the same for Jack Wilshere with the news that he will be out for between six and eight weeks with a hairline fracture in his left fibula.

What was originally reported as a minor ankle issue that might not even keep Wilshere out of the season opener has somehow transformed into a significant injury that may keep him out until the end of September. The news is more of the same for Wilshere who played well for England over the summer after recovering from an injury to the other leg late last season. Overall, ankle and leg issues have kept Wilshere from finding regular form or carving out a meaningful spot in the Arsenal squad let alone the starting eleven. He is quickly approaching Diaby/Rosicky status as talented but entirely unreliable due to health issues.

News broke on Sunday morning that Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere would miss the Community Shield game as a precaution after injuring his ankle during a training ground session on Saturday.

Wenger confirmed soon after that the injury was not a "concern" and the England international was expected to be available for GW1 as the initial prognosis suggested 2-5 days. However following the win over Chelsea the Arsenal boss appeared to contradict himself "We have no big injuries at the moment apart from Jack Wilshere." Now interpret that how you may but BIG could refer to ‘a key first team squad member’ or he may be referencing the injury itself. The latter certainly fits with reports this evening implying Wilshere is a major doubt for the opening weekend. The good news though – the problem occurred to Wilshere’s right ankle and not his troublesome left.
