The 29-year-old, who is presently a free agent, was sighted in north London on Thursday morning after practising with Calcio Como in Italy last month.

Granit Xhaka, a Swiss midfielder, is now out with a significant knee injury, prompting speculation about Wilshere’s comeback. However, he will only be practising with the club and completing his coaching qualifications in the coming weeks.

Following Unai Emery’s hiring as Arsenal manager over three years ago, the Hale End graduate moved to West Ham United.

 

However, his time with the Hammers did not go as planned, and he left the east London club in October 2020 after the two sides agreed to mutually terminate his contract.

Wilshere eventually spent the second half of last season with Bournemouth in the Championship before becoming a free agent in the summer, acknowledging that potential suitors scrutinize his previous injury record.

“I’m probably paying the price more than I did back then”, he told the Under The Surface podcast.

“And I can feel that now because I think it’s a perception and I’ve had this opinion from a few clubs: ‘Great player, but an injury waiting to happen.’

“I haven’t been injured since before lockdown – and that was not a serious injury – I’ve trained every day.

“When I was at Bournemouth I was available for every single game, so I feel like it’s a lazy answer because I can.

“Give me a chance, let me prove myself to you then, show you that I’m fit.”
