Arsene Wenger is prepared to listen to offers for Jack Wilshere as the club continues to weigh up the midfielder’s future.

Wilshere is one of those who is into the final year of their contracts but the club is yet to decide whether to keep him or not.

He’s been linked with West Ham and Sampdoria  already this summer but a move hasn’t materialized.

 Wenger had yet to make a decision on Wilshere’s future before the midfielder stepped up his recovery from a leg injury for Arsenal’s U23 last week but a dismissal in that game has swayed the manager’s mind towards letting the midfielder go.

In his pre match press conference ahead of the game against Liverpool,  Wenger refused to rule out selling Wilshere before the transfer window closes.

“I’m open with Jack,” the manager said, as quoted by the Mirror. “

We have honest conversations. I’m open to what is the best for him. He is at the stage of his career where he needs to play and I can’t guarantee him that today. I think I’m quite open on that.”

From the boss’ comments, it is obvious that keeping Wilshere isn’t the club’s priority and they would allow him leave if a suitable offer comes in.

Injuries have played a key part in stalling the midfielder’s career and he will definitely need to be playing regularly to get back to his best. Like Wenger rightly said, the chances of doing so at Arsenal is very slim.

This also shows how injuries have blighted Wilshere’s career in the last few years, the one time midfielder who looked indispensable at the club is now struggling to save his future

” Disgrace ” A Team With No Ambition- Club Insider lambast cowardly Arsenal

Having been torn to pieces in their humiliating 4-0 defeat at Liverpool, a similar fate befell Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal in the post-match post-mortems.

Wenger’s players were variously described as “lazy”, “pathetic”, “arrogant” and “disgraceful”, while the manager himself is under scrutiny once again just three months after signing a new two-year contract.

“Last season, I called them ‘cowards’,” former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher said on Sky Sports after Sunday’s match.

“And afterwards maybe I got a little bit of criticism. Maybe that’s a bit too strong and you can’t say that on live TV, but I’ll say it again –- cowards.”

“How can you play like this in a big game for so many of Arsenal’s players?” asked former Manchester United captain Gary Neville.

“Forget not turning up, forget not playing well, but just the general attitude or lack of respect for the shirt from three or four of them in not running back and not bothering is disgraceful.”

Arsenal great Thierry Henry, analysing the game for Sky Sports, confessed: “At one point I wanted to leave. I didn’t want to watch the game anymore. It’s too much to take.”

While it was Arsenal’s defensive shortcomings that were exhibited at Anfield, the player who featured on almost all the British newspapers’ sports pages was star forward Alexis Sanchez.

The Chile international was despondency personified as he traipsed to the dugout following his 62nd-minute substitution.

After the game, he took to Instagram to post a caption-free picture of himself sitting on his haunches on the Anfield pitch and dejectedly gazing at the ground.

Sanchez has been repeatedly linked with a move to Manchester City and Henry said none of Arsenal’s players could be blamed for casting glances elsewhere.

“Everything that you see on the day has been happening for the past 10 years,” said the Frenchman.

“We talk about Sanchez and is he staying, but they are not going to want to be part of this team. That is why players are not renewing their contracts. They can see something is wrong.

“The word I have used for a long time — comfort. Everyone is comfortable at Arsenal. It’s not the same pressure you have at a big club. Everything is… nice.”

The Daily Mirror branded Arsenal “a lazy, arrogant, broken team with no ideas and no hope” and directly blamed Wenger, who last led Arsenal to the title in 2004.

The Sun called Arsenal “lazy” and “pathetic” and said their torment at the hands of Firmino, Salah and Sadio Mane represented “a new low”.

The Times called it “unacceptable, unwatchable, unforgivable”.

 

Wenger Basically Confirm Mustafi’s Exit

Arsene Wenger has refused to rule out selling Shkodran Mustafi before next week’s transfer window deadline.

Mustafi is being linked with a move to the Serie A, with Juventus and Inter Milan both keen on his services.

Initially, Gooners found the reports linking the defender to the Serie A outrageous because Mustafi was a key player for us last season but it is becoming realistic, after Wenger refused to rule out selling the German.

When asked during his press conference about Mustafi’s future, Wenger refused to rule out selling the defender.

‘No I don’t expect [him to leave]. It’s difficult for me to speak about individual cases.’

‘The transfer market is now in the final seven days and it’s always difficult to predict what happens. You have got to make quick and sharp decisions.

‘You cannot come out in press conferences and say how you will respond to any solicitation.’

Bought for £35m from Valencia last summer, Mustafi quickly formed a strong partnership with Koscielny but injuries didn’t allow him enjoy a perfect season, restricting him to just 26 league appearances.

It’s being claimed that he has failed to bond with his teammates and as a result, Wenger would consider selling him if a replacement can be found and if the money spent on him last year can be gotten back.

Wenger’s comment does suggests that there is truth in the rumors and that makes me wonder why we haven’t been working towards signing a centre back before now. It’s just seven days left in the transfer window, there is no longer enough time to find a world class defender to replace the German. It would be a risky decision to rush into signing a replacement for such crucial position.
