Jack Wilshere ‘will struggle to find new club in January window’

Jack Wilshere could struggle to find a new club, as the Premier League loan market looks to go into overdrive in the January window.

The former Arsenal star has been without a club since his contract with West Ham was terminated earlier this year.

But despite being available on a free transfer, Wilshere could be facing a frustrating month at the start of 2021.

According to the Athletic, sides that are in the market for players are much more likely to look at those available on loan.

A number of high profile stars could be handed temporary switches as clubs look to trim their bloated squads.

Manchester United’s Phil Jones, Chelsea defender Marcos Alonso and Arsenal youngster William Saliba could all be on the move.

And the report claims that teams believe that players who have been training day-in and day-out are a more appealing proposition than the likes of Wilshere.

The ex-England international is on the lookout for a new club after leaving West Ham due to a lack of playing time.

Speaking to the Super 6 podcast earlier this year, Wilshere admitted that the decision to join a team like West Ham was “silly”, due to their style of play.

He also revealed that he would be open to a move abroad, including MLS, if the offer – and coach – was right for him.

Wilshere said: "When I went to West Ham, I didn’t know it was going to be how it was.

"With my experience now, I’d be silly to go and sign for a team who are in a similar position to West Ham.

"When there is a relegation battle, teams want to nick a point and stay up, nick a goal and try and defend. That’s not the type of player I am.

"I want to enjoy my football and play 25-30 games a season. I’m open to MLS, Europe anything with the right manager."
