French outlet L’Equipe are linking midfielder Jack Wilshere with a potential move to Ligue One winners Paris Saint-Germain.
The newly crowned Champions are said to be keen on the injury-plagued 26-old-year who is out of contract this summer. Wilshere has an offer on the table from Arsenal, but it is believed that his representatives met with PSG sporting director Antero Henrique to discuss a potential move, although the final decision would rest with new manager Thomas Tuchal. The news comes at the end of a frustrating week for Wilshere who was omitted from England’s 23-man World Cup squad and overlooked for a place on the standby list: "I’ve felt fit, sharp and strong all season and believe I should be in the squad!" he posted on his personal Twitter account. "Given the chance I could have made a real impact. However, I have to respect the manager’s decision and would like to wish the whole squad all the very best for the tournament." May 20 - 3:17 PM

Arsène Wenger is sweating on the fitness of Jack Wilshere after Mohamed Elneny was ruled out for at least three weeks.

The Egypt international rolled his ankle during Sundays 4-1 over West Ham and he will miss the Europa League tie against Atlético Madrid. Wilshere hasn't played since picking an ankle injury in Moscow 10 days ago, but is poised for a return in the semi-final first-leg: "Jack had a training session today [Sunday] and he looked positive, so he has a good chance to be available for Thursday." Wenger will check on several members of his squad ahead of the contest, but two players who will definitely miss out are Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang [cup-tied] and Henrikh Mkhitaryan who has failed to recover from a knee ligament injury. Petr Cech [hip] and Sead Kolasinac [ankle] will be assessed while serial sneezer, Mesut Ozil, who missed Sunday due to illness [6th absence in 15 months] faces a test: "We will have to see how he recovers."

Jack Wilshere faces a late fitness test after missing the 2-1 defeat at Newcastle last weekend because of injury.

Arsenal take on London rivals West Ham at the Emirates and Arsène Wenger will use this game as preparation for Thursday nights Europa League semi-final tie against Atletico Madrid. "I rested some players after the Moscow match, and they will need a game......" That should include the likes of Mesut Ozil, Laurent Koscielny and Hector Bellerin who were omitted from the matchday squad at St James' Park. Henrikh Mkhitaryan [knee] is running again and "he will be assessed over the next 4-5 days." David Ospina has fully recovered from his recent ankle problem but there is some uncertainty over Jack Wilshere who has an ankle injury. Even though Aaron Ramsey [shin laceration] is yet to train with the group, "he will be available" on Sunday. Santi Cazorla continues his rehab in Spain and there is still hope that he can return to the club before the end of the season, although he will not feature during the run-in.

Gareth Southgate insists "it’s not too late" for players to force their way into the World Cup squad.

The England boss was fielding questions ahead of the Three Lions game with Italy at Wembley tomorrow. "I don't think it’s too late for anybody, we'll still be monitoring everybody, none of us know what is going to happen over the next 8-10 weeks." The news will come as a welcome boost to senior players Gary Cahill and Chris Smalling who were omitted from the latest squad, while it offers hope to Jack Wilshere who missed out this time around due to a persistent knee [tendinitis] issue. The hapless midfielder has endured an injury plagued few years but was hoping to prove his fitness during the season run-in to make a late push for selection. Wilshere should be available to face Stoke this weekend according to Southgate: "It’s an ongoing issue that he has to manage. It wasn’t going to be ready for him tomorrow for us, but I’m pretty certain he’ll be back for Arsenal’s next game."

Jack Wilshere could miss his second consecutive match as Arsenal travel to Brighton on Sunday in Week 29 Premier League action.

Health has been the story of Jack Wilshere's second half of the season. Until missing the embarrassing loss to Manchester City on Thursday he had been healthy for most of 2018 outside of a match missed due to illness. Now the England man faces the chance of another missed match as he campaigns for a new contract at either Arsenal or elsewhere. There might be some quibbles over how far his talent has progressed since he burst on the scene but his availability has been the biggest impediment to his development into a star. If he struggles to remain fit down the stretch he could find himself with less-than-attractive options over the summer as well.

Arsenal looked to close the gap with Tottenham in the table, but it would only widen as they lacked much attacking threat in a 1-0 loss at Wembley Stadium.

Petr Cech was able to recover for the big derby but Aaron Ramsey, the hat trick hero from last weekend, was absent with a groin problem, and his lack of involvement may have been a big factor in today's result. Jack Wilshere came in to play the Ramsey role and was able to provide a couple of nice balls but Tottenham's defense was poised from start to finish and Arsenal's good looks at the target were limited. After giving up the opening goal early in the second half, Wishere looked to level it with a curling effort on 68 minutes, but a diving save kept it out. Spurs inability to find a second goal gave the Gunners a chance to find a positive result, and they nearly did in the final minute of stoppage time, but Alexandre Lacazette could not tuck the ball past Hugo Lloris and his effort dribbled wide. Time will tell on the extent of Ramsey's injury but Wilshere stands to benefit if the Welshman misses time beyond the international break.

Jack Wilshere will miss out on Arsenal's match against Swansea at the Liberty Stadium due to an illness.

Aaron Ramsey will return to the Arsenal starting eleven with Jack Wilshere making way due to an illness. Wilshere shouldn't miss any further action making Arsene Wenger's starting eleven at the weekend a fascinating outcome with Henrikh Mkhitaryan (also not in the starting eleven for Swansea) definitely available and Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang presumably available as well given how far along his transfer seems to be at this point.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said he is hoping to offer Jack Wilshere a new contract after his recent performances.

Wilshere is entering the final months of his contract and rumors have swirled about his next move. But Wenger confirmed his intention to keep the 26-year-old at the club if the right deal can be reached: "We know what we want," said Wenger. "We want him to stay and extend after that. We have to find out if he wants to stay and then after that we have to find satisfying financial agreement with Jack that is good for him. That's what we're trying to do."

Jack Wilshere has been rated as possible to participate at Bournemouth on Sunday after limping off against Chelsea in mid-week.

When we see Jack Wilshere limp out of a match it isn't unreasonable to expect him to be absent for a significant period of time. As it turns out, that isn't likely to be the case this time around. While the return to fitness of Aaron Ramsey could see Wilshere given one match to recover, he hasn't been ruled out for the trip to the south coast and could start if Wenger feels like Ramsey is a greater risk than Wilshere as far as re-injury goes. What will be interesting going forward is what Wenger does facing the rare circumstance of Wilshere and Ramsey both being healthy and showing recent good form.

Jack Wilshere is an early doubt for Sundays game at the Vitality after suffering an ankle sprain during the Carabao Cup semi-final bore-draw at Chelsea.

The injury-plagued Arsenal star has enjoyed a nice little run in the first team following the loss of Aaron Ramsey to a hamstring problem in December, however, his return to the fore faltered at the Bridge on Wednesday night. Wilshere attempted a block, which jarred his ankle, and despite treatment, he was replaced just before the hour mark. "The first look at it was not too bad, but of course for Sunday I think he will be short," said Arsène Wenger. "I do not know how long he will be out. It is a shame to lose him when he is such good form. It’s his good ankle so I am quite positive." Although, Ramsey is said to be closing in on a return, the Wales international is lacking match-fitness and Wenger may turn to Mo Elneny to sit alongside Granit Xhaka at Bournemouth this weekend.

Arsenal held Chelsea to a nil-nil draw in the first leg of their Carabao Cup tie at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday but will have to see if the knock that forced Jack Wilshere off in the 57th minute is a significant concern.

With the first leg of the semi-final of the Carabao Cup taking place at Stamford Bridge, Arsenal will be pleased with a draw that saw them show spine and scrappy-ness not usually associated with recent-vintage Arsene Wenger teams. What will be less pleasing is the image of Jack Wilshere limping off the pitch early with what could be yet another leg injury. Wilshere has had an excellent recent run in the side that coincided with Aaron Ramsey being injured. With the Welshman seemingly ready to return to action any absence by Wilshere could see him lose out on playing time if Ramsey comes back at the same level of effectiveness he was playing at when he went out injured.

Jack Wilshere was excellent for Arsenal deputizing for Aaron Ramsey but it wasnt enough as the Gunners failed to score against as resolute West Hsm side.

The question for Jasck Wilshere going forward is whether he will be given a chance to push forward from his excellent performa nice on Wednesday. Aaron Ramsey is reportedly close to a return and could be fit for the weekend. Fantasy manager's who bought in on Wilshere will have to wait and see how much of a run he gets.

Jack Wilshere is still not quite fit enough to feature for Arsenal in Week 4 against Bournemouth.

Wilshere, who played for the Cherries last season on loan, has been ruled not yet fit enough to return to action for Arsenal against his teammates from last season. The leg injury that ended Wilshere's time at Bournemouth has only recently healed and he is not judged to have played enough minutes with the U23s to be ready to participate with the senior team. Look for him to be ready by Week 5 or Week 6 at which time Arsene Wenger will have to decide where he stands in the pecking order for minutes at the base of the Arsenal midfield.

Jack Wilshere could miss Arsenal’s pre-season tour as his recovery from a fractured fibula is taking longer than originally anticipated.

The injury-plagued midfielder suffered a broken leg while on-loan at Bournemouth in April missing the remainder of the 2016/17 campaign. At the time, Arsène Wenger confirmed it was not serious, and Wilshere was expected to be ready for the start of pre-season: "I think it’s a simple fracture of the fibula and we need to be patience," he said before adding. "He will be back in July." However, it now seems certain that Wilshere, who has one year remaining on his current deal, will not be a part of the travelling squad to Australia and China, although he should be ready to rejoin the group on their return. The injury will not dissuade Arsenal from discussing a possible contact extension, but the deal may include certain clauses which could be linked to his availability. For example, on a pay-as-you-play basis.

Huddersfield Town are set to battle it out with West Ham United for Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere.

According to bookmakers Skybet, West Ham and Huddersfield Town have been made 3/1 joint favorites to land Wilshere this summer. The 25-year-old spent 2016/17 on with Bournemouth, making 29 Premier League appearances and providing two assists before missing the final month of the season with a hairline fracture in his leg. And with just one year left on his current contract at the Emirates it is believed the Gunners are open to offers for the England international. However, recent reports suggest that Arsenal has yet to receive an enquiry to sign him on loan or permanently in the summer transfer window.
