Arsenal star turns up for training despite being linked with summer exit
Arsenal star midfielder Jack Wilshere has returned to pre-season training with the rest of the squad.
The England international has been nursing an injury which kept him out of the tail-end of last season.
Arsenal confirmed the news on their official website.

Wilshere’s future at Arsenal is uncertain following the 25-year-old’s unsuccessful loan spell at Bournemouth.
Turkish Super League side Antalyaspor are one of several sides which have expressed an interest in Wilshere.
Antalyaspor president Ali Safak Ozturk confirmed that the club held early talks with Arsenal for Wilshere.
However, the Scorpions president Ozturk admitted that it will be a difficult transfer to pull off.
“We made an enquiry and are in talks but Arsenal want a lot for Wilshere,” Ozturk was quoted as saying by Turkish-Football.com.
“It will be a difficult move to pull off.”
Arsenal have set a £20 million price tag on their star midfielder. Wilshere has fallen down the pecking order at the Emirates and isn’t guaranteed a place in the squad this season.
Former Arsenal star Paul Merson believes Jack Wilshere will leave the north London-based club this summer.
“It’s a definite that he [Wilshere] will leave. I don’t think he was in Wenger’s plans,” Paul Merson told talkSPORT:
Wilshere provided just two assists and failed to score a single goal during his 29 Premier League appearances for Bournemouth last season.
