Crystal Palace linked with in-demand jack Wilshere

Crystal Palace are the latest side to be linked with a move for Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere who looks certain to leave The Emirates at the end of the month.

The 26-year old midfielder, who is out of contract on June 30th, had been set to sign a new deal at Arsenal worth £110,000 a week plus a £65,000 win bonus. However, he apparently has had a change of mind after meeting new manager Unai Emery, who told him he was not guaranteed a starting place next season.

Wilshere then took to Instagram saying ”There comes a time when you have to choose between turning the page and closing the book.”

If he does leave, he will have no shortage of choice when it comes to his next club. Italian clubs AC Milan, Sampdoria and Juventus are all monitoring developments, whilst there is interest closer to home from West Ham, Wolves and Everton. Now, according to The Daily Mirror, Crystal Palace are also ready to throw their hat into the ring who has been at Arsenal since he was nine years old.

Andy is an exiled English football fan living in Cyprus. He loves all sports but football is his abiding passion, and he still has dreams every now and then about scoring the winning goal in a Wembley Cup Final, even though his playing days are long gone. He follows most major leagues, across Europe at least, and has a favoured team in each. When he’s not watching, listening, reading or downloading podcasts about football, he spend his time worrying about his beloved Arsenal.
