Jack Wilshere is a fan favourite amongst the Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern…
The English midfielder is a homegrown talent at the Emirates, having come through the developmental system at the club, with many in the pub touting him for greatness from a young age.
However, in recent years, Wilshere has come off the boil somewhat. He has struggled with injury problems, missing the majority of the season through a lack of fitness on more than one occasion.
That has changed this year, though, with Wilshere doing a good job of remaining fit whilst on loan at Bournemouth. Though not a regular at present, Wilshere has remained injury free for much of the campaign, which is definitely a good sign for the Gunners.
It seems as though Arsenal themselves are impressed, too, with the Mirror recently reporting that the club are looking to secure a new contract for Wilshere.
Our landlord recently polled fans on that very topic, with the aim of trying to see if Wilshere – who reportedly earns £90,000-per-week, deserved a new deal. Unsurprisingly, a whopping 74% of fans voted in favour of a new deal for Wilshere – proving that fans are still keen to see him succeed.
The Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are desperate to see Wilshere return to Arsenal next season. Given the Gunners’ lack of fight in the midfield, he could be the perfect player to come in.
