'No-brainer', 'sign him': Some Arsenal fans want Edu to snap up 'excellent' free agent right away
A number of Arsenal fans have expressed their desire to re-sign Jack Wilshere on a free transfer.
Gunners midfielder Mohamed Elneny is currently being linked with a move away from the Emirates Stadium.
According to NTV Spor, Besiktas have lodged an offer for the Arsenal man.
The Turkish transfer window is open until September 8 so there’s a chance the Gunners enforcer could yet leave.
In addition, Granit Xhaka continues to split the Arsenal fanbase.
With the English transfer window now shut, the north Londoners can only bring in free agents until January.
And Wilshere is currently without a club, having left Bournemouth at the end of last season.
The 29-year-old came through the ranks at Arsenal and made 198 competitive appearances for the Gunners.
Wilshere has also won 34 caps for England and played for Bolton (on loan) and West Ham.
Although his career has sadly been hampered by injuries, quite a few Gunners fans would love to see him return as cover.
Here is what some Arsenal supporters have been saying on Twitter:
Pay as you play basis for Wilshere would be excellent but completely goes against our current strategy.— Jack Hay (@JackHayAFC) September 2, 2021
Our summer transfer window was pretty much the club giving up on returning to top 4 this season and conceding we’re a long term project. The goal should be top 6 now. Jack is an improvement on ElNeny so think it’s fair— #BringBackJack (@HobbsAFC) September 2, 2021
I see @JackWilshere is trending ATM. Lots of fans seem to want him back at @Arsenal on a pay as you play contract 🤔 I mean it's a no lose situation & a no brainer for me. Wins good will with the fans & only cost money if he trains well enough to get in the team. #Wilshere #AFC— Daniel Smith 🔰 (@Danjel_Smjth) September 2, 2021
I would happily take Jack Wilshere at arsenal. 29 years old can provide 2 more quality years, less wages, and most important he will seriously help young players like saka, ESR and odegaard develop. Sign him @Arsenal— Indian Gooner (@AfcJss) September 2, 2021
give me Wilshere over Xhaka any day— nuj (@afcnuj) September 2, 2021
