Club legend confirms Arsenal will soon reach agreement for transfer of International midfielder


Arsenal legend Ray Parlour says midfielder Jack Wilshere will probably ask to be sold in order to enjoy regular first-team football next season.

The Englishman failed to secure a regular place in Arsene Wenger's squad at the Emirates especially after suffering a number of injuries.

He made 29 league appearances for Bournemouth this season but suffered a broken fibula in their loss to Tottenham two months ago.

The Gunners will soon open talks with a number of clubs who are interested in the 25-year-old.

"The injuries have really taken its toll with Jack," he told talkSPORT.

"I'm really pleased he went out last season on loan to Bournemouth, got some game time because he's been lacking that.

"I'm sure he went to see Arsene Wenger and said 'what's my future?'. Arsene Wenger's probably honest with him and said 'look, there's lots of players in front of you'.

"They've got lots of midfielders, [Santi] Cazorla was your main man in front of him, he was going to play every week. So Jack said 'look, I want to play football' and he got his opportunity to go out on loan.

"Moving forward, it's a massive decision that Jack's got to make as well.

"Does he want to try and fight for his position at Arsenal or does he want to go out to a club and play?

"Another club, West Ham might be ideal for Jack Wilshere. I think if he wants to play on a regular basis, yes [I think he should leave], I really do.

"I don't think he will play on a regular basis, I know he's had his injuries this season as well but he's played a lot more football.

"Again, I'll go back to West Ham, they will be looking at midfielders, a bit more quality. I would say would Jack be worth £10million?

"He's only got a year left on his contract, that's the big stumbling block."
