Jack Wilshere faces a very uncertain future at Arsenal having not featured for the Gunners yet this season.

The England international spent last season on loan at Bournemouth where for the large part he impressed but Wilshere again suffered an untimely injury, fracturing his leg which forced him to miss most of pre-season.

With his contract expiring next summer, Wilshere was touted around for a potential transfer and the likes of West Ham, Newcastle, Swansea, Sampdoria, Fenerbahce and Antalyaspor were all linked with permanent or loan moves for the midfielder.
