Jack Wilshere refuses to rule out shock return to Arsenal first-team after training with former team to improve fitness

ARSENAL icon Jack Wilshere has refused to rule out a return to the club with the Gunners potentially needing reinforcements during the Africa Cup of Nations.

The 29-year-old has been back at London Colney to train with the first-team in his bid to keep up fitness in search of a new team.

Jack Wilshere has refused to rule out signing a short-term deal at Arsenal after training with the first-team

Wilshere is currently a free agent having been released by Championship outfit Bournemouth at the end of last season.

And despite the 34-cap England international hinting at retirement recently, he has admitted that a short-term deal back at the Emirates isn’t an impossibility.

Mikel Arteta‘s side are set to lose midfielders Thomas Partey and Mohamed Elneny for the Africa Cup of Nations.

Speaking on talkSPORT, Wilshere was asked by presenter Andy Goldstein who the North Londoners should sign in the duo’s absence.

He said: “Who do you think they should go for Jack?

“Why are you smiling? It should be someone like Jack Wilshere shouldn’t it.”

Wilshere replied by saying: “You can say that.”

Goldstein then commented: “Could that happen Jack?”

To which Wilshere remarked: “You’ve asked me this before and I told you, the answer has not changed.

“I went there, very kindly invited by them to come and train, keep my fitness, get my fitness back, which I’ve done. I am [training with the first-team].

“They’ve got a lot of midfielders. They’ve got Ainsley Maitland-Niles…”

Pushing for an answer, Goldstein said: “Is there a chance Jack? Is there a chance that you could be playing for Arsenal this season?”

Wilshere then refused to rule out an emotional return, as he stated: “I don’t know mate. Honestly, I don’t know. I’ll tell you what if it happens you’ll be the first one I text.”

The former Bolton loanee has also revealed he would be open to joining Derby in the New Year after rejecting the chance to sign for them in the summer.

And a move to MLS side Inter Miami also interests Wilshere, who declared playing abroad remains a big ambition for him.
