Jack Wilshere is set for talks with Arsene Wenger about his Arsenal future but could end up moving to China this summer if the talks do not go well.
The midfielder has been on loan at Bournemouth and while he has featured regularly he is yet to score for the Cherries and has managed just two assists in 27 Premier League appearances.
Wilshere’s season has now, once again, been ended prematurely after it was confirmed he suffered a hairline fracture in Bournemouth’s defeat to Tottenham although Wenger insists he should be fit for the start of next season.
The Daily Star now report that Wilshere will meet Wenger to discuss his Arsenal future with his contract set to expire at the end of next season.
The Gunners boss apparently wants to be convinced Wilshere has matured and will no longer be indulging in off-field activities that have seen him hit the headlines in recent years.
The tabloid also claims that there is a shortage of suitors for the Englishman with neither Bournemouth nor any other Premier League clubs having shown an interest in his services.

Therefore, if he is deemed surplus to requirements, Wilshere is reportedly ready to consider a lucrative move to China as a potential future option.
