Arsenal went on to win their first match against former Champions Leicester City in the opening fixture of the Premier League this season. It was a hard fought affair as the Foxes bowed out to the Gunners by 4 goals to 3, making it one of the most enjoyable matches for both sets of fans in the very first matchup of the season.
A number of players of the North London side were unable to feature in the match, including their young midfielder Jack Wilshere, who was not even included on the bench for the match. This has reportedly made the player, who reckons that he is fit enough to start in the Arsenal side this season, disappointed with the team management and he is eyeing an exit from the Emirates Stadium in the ongoing transfer window.
Though a number of clubs are looking to bag the player for the new season, Newcastle United look to be the most interested in making a bid for the English international in the transfer market. The Magpies are not having a good summer in the transfer window so far, and are looking to bring in someone who can stabilize their midfield for the new term.
Wilshere, who had a fairly good season for the Premier League club Bournemouth in the last season on loan, came back into the side for the North London club on the completion of the season. However, it seems that the current man in charge Arsene Wenger has been wary of the fact that the player has had too many injury layoffs in the past and is not much confident to field him as of now.
Injury has been one of the major detrimental factors for the career of the English youngster to shine so far. Despite that, he has been identified as one of the prime targets by a number of clubs including his last season ‘s club Bournemouth, where he spent it on loan.
However, in the current situation, Newcastle looks to be the favourites to bag the player for the new season and are ready to make a bid for him, with the English youngster looking to make it out of the Arsenal side before the closure of the current transfer window. It, however, lies with the decision of the Arsenal hierarchy, whether they will let go of the player in the summer or not, with the player only having one more year left on his contract with the former Premier League champions.
