Arsenal star ends summer exit talks after deciding to stay put
Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has been closely linked with an exit this summer.
Wilshere did not exactly have a que of clubs lining up to sign him but Super Lig minnows Antalyaspor were interested.
In fact club president Ali Safak Ozturk confirmed talks with the England international over a summer move.
“We made an enquiry and are in talks but Arsenal want a lot for Wilshere,” Ozturk was quoted as saying by Turkish-Football.
“It will be a difficult move to pull off.”
It now turns out that Wilshere will stay put at the Emirates and fight for his place in the team.
The Daily Mail report that the 26-year-old has refused to leave despite being told last month that he is free to leave the Emirates.
Per the source, Wilshere wants to get back into the team but has called behind Aaron Ramsey, Granit Xhaka, Elneny and Francis Coquelin.
Ramsey and Xhaka are reported to be first choice while Elneny and Coquelin are back ups.
The report confirms that Wilshere received offers from Antalyaspor and Sampdoria while West Ham and Swansea were keen on a loan move.
Wilshere could be headed for Europa League and EFL Cup action if he is kept on at Arsenal next season.
