Jack Wilshere has had his fair share of injuries in the past, but it seemed over the last year that the issues were behind him.
After recovering from a broken leg following his return to Arsenal from Bournemouth last summer, the midfielder spent the majority of the 2017-18 season injury-free.
Wilshere decided to call time on his Arsenal career by joining West Ham United on a free transfer, but it has not been the bets of moves.
In four Premier League outings, the England international has failed to impress in the middle of the park.
West Ham fans were excited by Wilshere’s arrival, but he is yet to make a significant impact in Manuel Pellegrini’s team.
If reports are to be believed, the midfielder will be unable to prove his quality for around six weeks due to injury.

According to The Guardian, Wilshere is set for a spell on the sidelines after undergoing ankle surgery following a sprain that he picked up in training last week.
Plenty of West Ham fans have been tweeting their thoughts on the news.
Wilshere is exactly one of those players who are so predictable, one slight knock, originally one game that turns to 6 weeks, always the same, at least Carroll has someone to keep him company.

Played our best game of the season at Goodison without him.

Only Jack Wilshere could be out for 6 weeks with a sprained bloody ankle #WHUFC

This is a shock. If only there was some indication of being injury prone before we signed him.
