Another season nearing to the end, another season of Jack Wilshere largely out of it on the sideline recovering on the medical table.
The midfielder’s move from Arsenal to West Ham was meant to signal the end of Wilshere’s injury woes, but since making the move across the English capital it’s been the same story for the once-touted ‘future England captain’.
Wilshere has only made five appearances for the Hammers this season after injuring both ankles that has kept the Englishman out for the majority of the season.
But with Manuel Pellegrini saying recently via the Daily Mail that the former Arsenal man is set to return to first-team football, we could see the midfielder on the pitch before the end of the season, but what does the future hold for Wilshere?
Wilshere is a player of immense talent, who has shown time and time again in the past that when fully fit and on form he is one of the best midfielders in the Premier League, but finding that balance is what makes the 27-year-old an oddity in football.
Having been so injury-prone throughout his entire career, Wilshere is a risky player to have around any team. Although when he’s fit and firing there’s no doubt he is worth having in the squad, these moments are few and far between due to just how often he is out with a long-term injury.
If Wilshere can have a good 2019/20 season where he stays fit and starts over 20 games in the league for the Hammers, there is a good chance the former Arsenal man will be a success for the club and stay on, but if he’s unable to remain fit and misses more time again injured, it will be unsurprising to see Pellegrini cut his losses and ship the midfielder off.
West Ham fans, does Wilshere have one more season to save his Hammers career? Let us know!
