Jack Wilshere is ‘considering his future’ at Arsenal as he eyes a place in England’s World Cup squad, according to reports.
The 25-year-old’s last England cap came in the Three Lions’ humiliating 2-1 defeat to Iceland as they were knocked out of the 2016 European Championships.
He has been told by manager Gareth Southgate that he has to be ‘playing at a good level’ to be considered for a possible return to the side.
And, according to The Times, the midfielder is now considering leaving the Gunners to enhance his chances of regular game time before next summer’s tournament in Russia.
Wilshere spent last season on loan at Bournemouth and managed to stabilise his career by staying mostly injury-free with the Cherries.
But Wilshere has played just three games for the Gunners this season, and is yet to make an appearance in the Premier League since his return to the club.
So with the player knowing he needs regular game time to impress Southgate, a move away from the Emirates could be on the cards, with West Ham and Crystal Palace said to be interested.
