Jack Wilshere a target for surprise club
Jack Wilshere is being targeted by Birmingham City in a loan deal ahead of the deadline, according to Sky Sports News.
Birimingham have already signed Cohen Bramall and Carl Jenkinson on loan from the Gunners and now want to add to their Arsenal contingent in the squad.
Harry Redknapp, the Birmingham boss, has been very active this summer and now wants to bring Wilshere to the club.
It will be a big drop for Wilshere. It was not long ago that he was thought of as England’s brightest talent.
A series of injuries has seen his career stall and he spent last season away from Arsenal on loan.
This season appeared to be his last chance at Arsenal with his contract expiring at the end of the year. If this move goes through then it would surely signal the end of his Gunners career.
He has also been linked with West Ham this summer. With Arsenal looking a little short in midfield it could have been a chance for Wilshere to play. Arsene Wenger obviously does not have him in his plans though.
