Arsenal midfielder, Jack Wilshere has come back to be a bigger and better player for Arsenal after his injury scare early on in the season. With Arsenal being in a situation where the future of their top players looks uncertain, looking inward for an academy graduate to lead the charge might just be the way out of the mess which The Gunners find themselves in.
Since the 26-year-old returned from his loan spell at Bournemouth, he has taken advantage of injuries to other midfielders and has been amazing when called upon and has featured in several man of the match performances.
Wilshere now has less than six months on his Arsenal contract and if he continues to play well until the end of the season, he will definitely get a top side calling for his signature but it still feels like Jack wants to stay at his boyhood club.
Wilshere could lead Arsenal to glory again and the club needs more players who believe and share the same ideology and love for the club. No wonder he was so proud to have captained the side against Chelsea last week during our 0-0 draw, Wilshere our best player once again. He was subbed late on after picking up a small injury only to shrug it off and play against Bournemouth on Sunday, after the Chelsea game, Jack posted on his Instagram feed:
“What an honour to be given the armband tonight! Enjoyed every minute of it. Thanks to the fans you were fantastic as always! Hope my injury is not to bad and I’m back as soon as possible…”
Since he was challenged by the England manager, Gareth Southgate to get more regular playing time at Arsenal to earn his place on the plane to Russia, his game time has increased tremendously and he’s done exactly that, surely earning his place in the squad, injuries permitting.
He’s the best creative midfielder England have at the moment and deserves a starting berth in the middle of the park for both club and country.
For Arsenal, Wilshere’s future hinges on just how long he can avoid injury but for now things seem to be going very well for our very own Super Jack.
