Jack Wilshere was a Hale End graduate who came up the ranks and made his debut under Arsene Wenger. The midfielder was regarded as one of the brightest prospects in England football after excelling for Arsenal at a very young age. He was at the club for more than a decade and is still respected and loved by all Arsenal fans, his performance against Barcelona in the Champions League is his most famous and remembered match.
Which club does Jack Wilshere now play for?
Wilshere left Arsenal in 2018 when his contract ran out at North London, he then joined West Ham United on a free transfer. Jack mentioned in an interview that he should have never left Arsenal and that it was his biggest mistake, he did not get the playing time he expected he would at West Ham, ultimately leaving the club two years later.
He then joined AFC Bournemouth hoping to restart his career, but things did not go as planned there as well, leaving Jack Wilshere without a club in 2021. Wilshere was recently pictured training with Italian club Como who play in Serie B. After Mikel’s recent comments, Wilshere will be looking for one last chance to prove himself as a Gunner.
