Arsenal midfielder not thinking of his long-term future yet
Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere, who is currently on loan at AFC Bournemouth, says he is only focussed on keeping the Cherries in the Premier League and not his long-term future, per Sky.
The 25-year-old remains very highly-rated at the Emirates Stadium, having come through the ranks and made his debut in 2008, but injury problems forced him down the pecking order.

Wilshere moved to the Vitality Stadium in the summer and has been a regular in Eddie Howe’s plans, and although he started on the bench against West Ham, the team’s first win of 2017, he insists his current team is his main focus.
“I want to play every minute that’s why I came here but I’ve always been a team player wherever I’ve been. I respect the manager’s decision and the team have justified it so we’ll see what happens next week,” he said in quotes from the Daily Mirror.
“I’m not thinking about my future. I’ve got a year left at Arsenal and as soon as the season ends I’ll sit down and I’ll think about it.
“But my main concern at the moment is trying to keep Bournemouth in this league because no matter what happens next year, if I’m here if I’m not, if I’m at Arsenal – whatever – you know no one wants a relegation next to their name.
“You don’t want to be involved in a team that got relegated so that’s what we’re doing now, trying to put Bournemouth in a good position and at the end of the season I’ll have a think about it.”
There could be a summer of transition in store for the Gunners with Arsene Wenger yet to sign a new contract to extend his 21-year reign as manager.
