Wenger Hints At Wilshere Loan

Wenger Hints At Wilshere Loan

Arsene Wenger has dropped a quite sizable hint that he would be prepared to let Arsenal starlet, Jack Wilshere go out on loan should the right club come calling.

The Arsenal gaffer has often be known for sending young players out on loan to help them further their careers (or to try and make a sale, but let's face it, that's definitely NOT what's happening here), but he's usually less enthusiastic about sending his most promising prospects away.

However, Wenger seems to be open to the prospect of sending young Jack to get some playing time as long as the prospective club offers just that. Arsene would not be keen on sending him away to warm some one else's bench, and that's a fair call.

Wenger said, "Jack is impatient to play and he wants to play, He has the quality of a top-level player but he is still very young to throw in every week in the Premier League.'

We have had a few enquiries about him. But it is always a sensitive subject to give the players out on loan because you must trust the manager that they will play them. There is a real need there. But if he goes out on loan and [just] sits on the bench it is better that he stays and practices with us."

What's the betting that Arsene's phone was ringing off the hook ten minutes after his quotes were published on Arsenal.com?

I think somewhere like Fulham or West Ham might be best for him-they play good football and I think Zola and Hodgson can be trusted, as Wenger puts it. This is probably best for Jack, he's at a stage where he's far too good for reserves and youth but not quite good enough to be in our first team. Wenger said that he felt our level dropped against City because a lot of the young players weren't used to 90 minutes of competition at that level and that may have influenced his thinking here.

That will be invaluable experience for young Jack. If the marked improvments to Song's game, after a stint with Charlton is anything to go by, it is something that needs to be part of the plan for the younger lads, yearly. The choice of acceptable clubs is another thing and I shall go for lower placed clubs who require something refreshingly different.

I like the Fulham idea LD. He wouldn't have to up-sticks, Hodgeson is a good man, and Fulham are playing pretty well. There's no point in sending a classy footballer to a team that plays hoofball. Fulham it is!

F**k that, he's an exceptional talent, best way to learn is to play the game. Play him.

Personally I dont think he has played as many minutes as he should of for us. He always seems to have a cracking pre-season/Emirates cup and then hardly see any action? Not a massive fan of loaning out our players, Song may have benefited a little but not enough that it made him ready for our 1st team (Playing the whole season last year with us made him ready) The same with Nicky B. Also after Djorrou was loaned to Birmingham he has never been the same, Traore has he benefited? Id keep him with us and try playing him a bit more.

I think the point is that Wilshere needs to more than just sub appearances at this stage, like I said, Wenger was clearly struck by how quickly the physical level of the younger players dropped at City. Realistically, he's not good enough to get that kind of exposure with the plethora of forwards we currently have (even with all of our injuries to attacking players, we still started Saturday's game with Nasri, Rosicky and Arshavin with Eboue playing high up the pitch). He's probably at that stage where he needs regular game time and the truth is we can't give it to him right now. His performance against City was quite average and that's probably due to that fact.

He isn't going to get much playing time for us this season other than the odd cameo when we are a few goals in front. That's the dilemma with some of these kids. They need the playing time at a higher level than the reserves can offer but aren't really anywhere near ready to compete for 90 minutes at the level our expectations demand. I don't think he is even at the level that he would get into the Fulham side often enough to justify a loan there.

Truth is nobody knows what level he is at as we haven't seen him play enough. Its a little confusing given Arsenes "killing youngsters" line that he is considering loaning out Wilshere and wants to possibly extend Rosickys contract?

Extending Rosicky's contract for 2 or 3 years isn't going to impact greatly on 17 year old Wilshere's career. Some of these kids are in too much of a hurry. Bentley's problem was that at 19 he thought he was ready for the big time. Now he can't even hack it at the spuds.
