With City’s form slipping since the New Year, massive paper chases have linked Jack Wilshere, one of Arsenal’s greatest ever products from their academy, to the one club (besides Tottenham) that no Gooner wants to see him at – Manchester City. Manchester City’s squad seems to be aging quicker than any other club in the Premier League, which has shown to be their Achilles Heel in their title defense, or lack thereof.

As Jack Wilshere returned to action for the Arsenal U21s, Arsenal fans are starting to grow skeptical of the academy prodigy. Right when it looks like Wilshere is stringing together a couple weeks of great form, right when we need him the most… he picks up another knock.

When I first saw paper chase about Wilshere’s possible transfer to City, I was outraged. Jack isn’t the money-hungry (Bacary Sagna) kind of player, he loves life at Arsenal. Gooners tend to take a liking to players because of one common factor, they are hardworking – and Jack is one of the hardest working lads in England. Besides the bags of goals he brought to north London, Alexis Sanchez brought the sense of hardworking blue-collar defence back to a deflated Arsenal defence – exactly why Gooners took a liking to Sanchez. Wilshere is a key piece in Wenger’s grand scheme, especially with Arteta and Flamini most likely departing this summer to make room for younger talent.

With a timely return to the squad, Wilshere should look to get some minutes in Arsenal’s clash at Wembley Stadium with Reading in the 2015 semi-final match. I don’t think Jack should get the start, but definitely give the lad some minutes to get his legs back under him before the Chelsea clash at the end of the month, the most important league game of the year. Hopefully the young Englishman can reach his full potential in the home stretch of the campaign, leading Arsenal to a good finish in the league and FA Cup victory. When recently asked about rumours about Jack heading to the Etihad in the summer, Arsene Wenger explained to reporters how Wilshere isn’t going anywhere, because Arsenal don’t have to finance the Emirates anymore – basically, once a Gunner, always a Gunner!

    Wilshere with his type of running at defenders approach now is a liability and will always likely pick up injuries, he can only become I tetras to this team again if he returns to his simple early beginnings, control and make the quality pass. He’s over carrying the ball these days
