Football pundit Ray Wilkins has urged Jack Wilshere to leave Arsenal.
Wilshere is struggling for game time at Arsenal, so far been limited to cup games and cameo appearance in the Premier League.
As bad as that may sound, the midfielder’s woes doesn’t end there. His contract expires at the end of the season and there is no word yet from the club whether he would be offered a new deal or not.
The uncertainty surrounding his future has led to several exit reports and Wilkins has now erred his opinion.
Ray Wilkins was reacting to Wenger’s comments that Wilshere deserves a place in England’s world cup squad due to his quality.
The former Chelsea man says the midfielder would have to leave the Emirates to stand any chance of getting back into the Three Lions fold.
“He has so much to offer Arsenal,” he told Sportingbet, as quoted by the Daily Cannon. “I’m baffled by Arsene’s comments that Jack should be in the England set up when he can’t step up and put him in the first team for Arsenal.
“Jack has to leave for me. It’s evident he’s only playing a bit part, and he’s too good for that. I get a little bit miffed by that, because if it doesn’t change – he needs to leave.”
Wilshere made his fifth league appearance for Arsenal this season on Sunday and is yet to start a game in the competition.
Realistically speaking, he doesn’t stand a chance of making the English squad at the moment, unless there is a drastic change in his situation before the season ends.
