Jack Wilshere: Wenger told me I could leave Arsenal in summer

Max Meyer

"He gave me the opportunity [to leave] with three or four weeks left in the transfer window", Wilshere said.

"It did make me think, because he had said I could fight for my position".

Struggling for fitness and game-time, Wilshere had not represented his country since the excruciating Euro 2016 last-16 exit to Iceland and was staring down the barrel at Arsenal.

Wilshere could end up following down a similar path, with the England global now facing the prospect of going to the World Cup as a free agent. "And with this group of players, it wouldn't be fair".

"I did not find anything that I wanted and at the same time I was not really fit, so I decided that I wanted to stay and build up my fitness", added Wilshere.

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has revealed Manchester United legend Gary Neville convinced him about a positional change.

"The season is not going individually and collectively as he had hoped for".

With Jack Wilshere seemingly on his way out and (far less believable) rumours surrounding the future of Aaron Ramsey, a new midfielder at the Emirates certainly wouldn't hurt, but we're dealing with Lyon here. His contract is set to expire at the end of the season, meaning he could become a free agent while at the World Cup. "This is where I wanted to be".

"Ideally from my point of view and the club's point of view, they will probably want it sorted".

Wilshere started the training session at the national football centre on Thursday but was withdrawn from the squad that travelled to Birmingham International airport.

Wilshere's performances in the Carabao Cup and the Europa League soon earned Wilshere a chance to shine in Wenger's starting XI in the Premier League. "So a fit Jack always goes to Russian Federation for me". "I am at an age now where I get it and it means a lot to me".
