Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere will leave the club on loan before the transfer window closes as he looks to find full fitness and form.
The 24-year-old is attracting a lot of interest and, according to The Times, Crystal Palace are leading the way to pick him up on a season-long deal.
However, Bournemouth are also in the frame, while the likes of Celtic, AS Roma and Watford enquired about Wilshere’s availability.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger remains a fan of the player who he gave a debut to back in 2008 but the string of injuries has made Wilshere unreliable.
Wilshere’s lack of first team football has also impacted his international career, and he didn’t make the cut for Sam Allardyce’s first squad since taking over from Roy Hodgson after EURO 2016.
If Jack Wilshere was playing every week for Arsenal he would be in the squad, but unfortunately he isn’t. It is game time for him and it has been few and far between because he has had too many injuries unfortunately.

Despite featuring in all three of Arsenal’s Premier League games so far this season, the Gunners are happy for Wilshere to temporarily move elsewhere.
The 34 times capped left footer has plenty of time on his side and there have been no suggestions that this is the beginning of the end for his career at The Emirates.
