Having come through our academy to rise to global stardom, Jack Wilshere will always have a special place in the hearts of Arsenal fans.
But what does the future hold for him? Arsene Wenger has been discussing the England international and his return from injury.
This is what he had to say:
on whether he expects him to stay...
That decision is not completely made, I want him to have a chance to play somewhere as well. We have to decide that a bit later. I wanted first for him to come back, he is coming out of a fracture. It is the first week he is back in full training and we have to sit down together and see where we go from there.
on having always wanted the best for him…
I made him start at a very young age. He has gone through difficult times, I want him to have the career he can have and I am quite open on that.
on whether his time has passed at the club…
It is not passed because he has the talent to be regular, but he has to come back to competition in a consistent way.
