Arsenal star tipped to leave Emirates Stadium within the next year by former Gunner.
Former Arsenal star Perry Groves suggests that Jack Wilshere could seek a move away from Emirates Stadium if the Gunners don’t resolve their trophy drought soon.
Groves, who played 155 games for the north London side, scoring 21 goals, thinks that unless Arsenal are challenging for trophies in the short term, Wilshere will look to leave.
“Arsenal have probably got another season of Jack Wilshere,” Groves told the Daily Star.
He added: “If they don’t win anything Jack might think about moving on.”
Arsenal have of course lost a number of their top players in recent years, with Cesc Fabregas, Samir Nasri, Robin Van Persie and Alex Song all departing for big money moves elsewhere in pursuit of success.
However, Groves’ comments of Wilshere’s departure appear unlikely for two reasons.
The first is that Gunners manager Arsene Wenger is confident a British core to his team will result in increased loyalty to the north London side, and will look to build his team around the likes of Wilshere, Kieran Gibbs, Carl Jenkinson, Aaron Ramsey and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
The second is that Wilshere has himself promised that he will stay at Arsenal for the rest of his career.
However, with an increased transfer kitty at Arsenal this summer, perhaps the Gunners will challenge for trophies next season.
