Jack Wilshere set to choose Bournemouth over Crystal Palace
Wilshere set for season-long loan from Arsenal, with Cherries likely to land the midfielder
August 31st, 2016
Eddie Howe looks to have pulled off a potential coup on transfer deadline day, with Jack Wilshere on his way to the Vitality Stadium for a season-long loan.
Wilshere has effectively been told by Arsene Wenger that he can’t be guaranteed first-team football at the Emirates Stadium, with the midfielder now considering his options after Crystal Palace and Bournemouth expressed an interest in landing him.
The early morning odds on deadline day suggested that Palace would land the signature of Wilshere, although it now seems that the Cherries will get a player who was part of the England squad at Euro 2016.
Indeed, Wilshere’s ability has rarely been questioned, although the player has spent most of his career on the sidelines through various injuries, with Wenger losing patience with someone who has had their fair share of off-the-field indiscretions.
It appears that Eddie Howe is willing to offer him a fresh start on the south coast and the Cherries manager will hope to recruit the player on a permanent basis should the loan spell be a successful one.
Wilshere will simply hope to get the sort of game time that has sadly been lacking for the past few seasons.
