According to reports from The Sun, Newcastle United are amongst the clubs interested in signing Arsenal’s ever-crocked star Jack Wilshere.
The 34-cap England international wasn’t picked for Arsenal’s Premier League opener against Leicester City last week after suffering a leg break at the end of last term.
But it’s alleged that Wilshere was available for selection against the Foxes on Friday and his absence from the squad has left him resigned to leaving his boyhood club.
On paper, the 25-year-old would be a fantastic acquisition for the Toon, who are looking to re-establish themselves in the Premier League after gaining promotion from the Championship.
But Wilshere always comes at a compromise of talent versus fitness; last season’s leg break was just one in a string of recurring injuries that have unquestionably stopped him reaching his full potential.
So, Newcastle fans, would you take a punt on the often-injured playmaker or should the Magpies steer clear? Let us know by voting below…
