Why Arsenal should give Jack Wilshere another chance

Former Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere is currently training with the first team after failing to secure a deal in the summer. 

The England midfielder spent ten years in Arsenal's first team after seven years in the Hale End Academy. Last season, he represented Bournemouth but injuries restricted his game time to just fourteen appearances. 

Wilshere struggled to find a club after leaving Bournemouth due to his injury records. However, he has started training with the Gunners, getting fit for his coaching badges. 

Since the rumour starts circulating, Arsenal fans have been divided over signing the England midfielder. Some do not think it is necessary while others think otherwise. 

However, there are various reasons why Arsenal should give Jack Wilshere another chance at the club despite his injury records. worries, the England midfielder is still a quality player. 

With Arsenal missing Granit Xhaka for about 3-4 months, the signing of Wilshere helps replace him without spending any euros.  

Arsenal are not well-equipped in the midfield and the absence of Xhaka creates a big hole in the squad. Also, the Gunners don't have the financial capacity to get a quality replacement for Xhaka in the winter. 

Although Arsenal have Albert Sambi-Lokonga, the young Belgian midfielder has talent but he needs time to adapt to the Premier League, thereby, putting Arsenal in a situation where they need to sign a replacement for the Swiss midfielder. 

The signing of Jack Wilshere will provide a backup for Xhaka, a replacement that does not need time to adapt to the league and knows the club very well. 

Being a previous Arsenal midfielder, the England midfielder will bring the leadership quality to the Arsenal midfield and squad.

With the performance against Tottenham, Arteta has shown that he has the quality to compete against the best teams in the league if he has a quality squad. 

The presence of Wilshere will improve the quality of the squad and give options to the coach in case of injuries.
