Premier League trio interested in Wilshere

Cape Town - Crystal Palace, Bournemouth, and Watford are all believed to be interested in signing Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere on loan.

The England international has been told that he can leave the club on loan to give him the chance to recapture the form that saw him labelled one of the most promising young players in the Premier League.

The 24-year-old has featured just twice for the Gunners this season, coming off the bench on both occasions, and made just three appearances in the entire 2015/16 Premier League campaign in another injury-hit season.

Granit Xhaka's off-season arrival means that Wilshere faced an increasingly difficult task of getting back into the Arsenal first team, and it is thought that he requires consistent first-team football if he is to return to a level which will see him challenge for a starting berth at the Emirates.

With the transfer window closing on Wednesday, Arsenal are short on time to find Wilshere a club, but in addition to the Premier League trio it has been reported that Portuguese big guns Sporting Lisbon and Benfica are also interested in his services.
