Arsenal

Wilshere to battle for Gunners future

9th November 2017, 01:37 by Michael Holland

Arsenal star Jack Wilshere is ready to fight for his Gunners future and force his way back into the England squad at the same time.

The Gunners midfielder has been left out of England's squad for this month's friendlies against Germany and Brazil due to his lack of game time at club level.

The 25-year-old has been hampered by injury problems in recent years and could be running out of time to win a place in Gareth Southgate's party for next summer's World Cup.

He also needs regular action with Arsenal to secure a new contract. His current deal is expires at the end of the current season. Wilshere, who spent last season on loan at Bournemouth, is yet to start in the Premier League this season.

Wilshere told Sky Sports News: "I want to be playing for my country. I am a proud Englishman. But it is down to the manager. He didn't select me. He said I need more football.

"That is what I have got to do. I have got to take it on board, try to get into the Arsenal first team and hopefully I'll be selected. I have just come back to full fitness. I am happy with where I am, playing-wise. I am trying to get into the Premier League team.

"At the moment I am concentrating on the now. The future will take care of itself. All I have got to do is stay fit and play my football. I want to stay at this club, I have said that many times."
