Jack Wilshere could be on his way to the National League as new reports indicate the ex-Arsenal man could drop down the divisions to make his football comeback.
Wilshere began his top-flight career at Arsenal where he spent a decade, making 125 appearances for the Gunners. During that spell, Wilshere was besieged by injury problems that have continued to dog his career following his departure from the North London club in 2018.
Jack Wilshere then swapped the red and white for the claret and blue of West Ham, making just 16 appearances for The Hammers in a two-year spell at the London Stadium.
Wilshere was most recently contracted to Championship outfit Bournemouth after signing a deal with the Cherries in January 2021. The former England star was previously on loan to the south coast club for the 2016/17 season as his time at Arsenal was winding down. Bournemouth released Wilshere at the end of the 2020/21 season after he made 14 appearances for the promotion-chasing club.
Now Football Insider has reported that Wilshere could be making a return to full-time football with National League club Wrexham plotting an audacious bid for the midfielder.
The North Wales club is of course now owned by Hollywood stars Rob McElhenny and Ryan Reynolds. The ambitious American owners have already brought veteran manager Phil Parkinson to the club as they look to restore Wrexham to the English Football League for the first time since 2008.
Jack Wilshere has been recently training with Arsenal as he looks to resurrect his football career but it remains to be seen if the 29-year-old will be gracing the Racecourse Ground any time soon.
