He has been invited back at the club by Mikel Arteta to train inside the club’s facilities, given that he did not have a club to play for after being released by Bournemouth at the end of the previous season.

“I went there, very kindly invited by them to come and train, get my fitness back, which I’ve done,” said the midfielder when asked by talkSPORT.

He also touched on another important aspect, which has been widely talked about in the coming weeks by Mikel Arteta, a way to bring back Arsenal’s legendary coach Arsene Wenger into the club. The Spaniard who has played under Wenger in the past, is keen on bringing him back and Jack Wilshere gave his thumbs up for any such move in the future.

Arteta wants Wenger to return to Arsenal in any role

He obviously is an Arsenal man,” Wilshere said of Arsene Wenger.

“He built that training ground, he knows everything that happens there. He’s built it into a successful place where winning was just the way of life.”

“He created that winning mentality, so I think Mikel – I read his comments, he said he wants him close to him.”

“I think that would be a good move because he’s an Arsenal- – he is Arsenal. When I was growing up, I used to think Arsenal was called Arsenal because of Arsene Wenger.

“When anyone, especially in my era, thinks of Arsenal, it’s Arsene Wenger. I think it would be a good thing to have him back at the club.”
