Arsene Wenger has revealed his stance on Jack Wilshere’s loan move to Bournemouth and his future at the club.
The England international was allowed to leave on loan during the final week of the summer transfer window, to the surprise of a few.
After watching Wilshere redeem his full fitness and display some of his best form at the Vitality stadium, Wenger has faced questions about the future of the 25-year-old.
According to the Arsenal manager, Wilshere is expected to come back to Arsenal at the end of this season regardless of what Bournemouth are planning on offering.
“Yes [on whether he will return when the season ends]. We have, at the moment, had no move from Bournemouth for Jack Wilshere.” Wenger said at his press-conference.
Even so, the Cherries’ boss Eddie Howe has continued to express his desire to sign the midfielder on a permanent deal.
“We would love that to happen,” Howe said. “I can’t rate Jack any higher as a person or a footballer, and how he’s come into the team and what he has delivered for us. But there has been no discussion with Arsenal.
“As I see it, Jack’s on loan until the summer when we’ll look at it and Jack will look at it. He views this as his home at the moment, until the end of the season. His heart has been here from the day he walked in the door.”
