Crocked Arsenal ace Jack Wilshere is facing a race to be fit in time to stake a real claim in the England squad for Euro 2016, according to the Daily Mail.
The 23-year old hasn’t appeared at all this season after fracturing his tibia late on during the Gunners’ pre-season preparations.
Prior to his injury, the England international was a favourite under Three Lions chief Roy Hodgson and was often afforded a starting berth.
The report claims Hodgson is very keen to include Wilshere in his squads during the run-up to this summer’s European Championships in France.
Though he has returned to elements of training, club boss Arsene Wenger has revealed the dynamic playmaker will be out of action until mid-March.
Previously, it had been hoped the Arsenal academy graduate would return this month, though seems to have suffered a setback.
‘Jack is starting to run’, revealed Wenger.
‘Once you move out, from the first day you count six weeks to be competitive and build up stamina and intensity.’
‘You need six weeks to be ready fitness-wise.’
