Arsenal target 25-year-old as replacement for injury prone midfielder

Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.

Santi Carzorla has undergone his eight surgeries, and it does not look likely that he will be making an appearance till October. However while the injury is a bad news for the Gunners and could have a negative effect on Arsenal’s success, it is a platform for a key returnee to make his talent known.

Jack Wilshere endured a rocky season-long loan spell Bournemouth. He had his high moment, where he was the determining force in the squad, but for the most part, Wilshere could not maintain his consistency.

With Carzorla absent, Wilshere will get more playing opportunity. The loanee himself needs to ensure that he has recovered well from his broken injury, but regarding recent reports, he is expected to be fit for the long haul.

If Wenger still consider Wilshere as the man to solve Arsenal midfield crisis, then he needs to start being more responsibility. Cazorla’s injury, no matter how serious and startling, it is the right platform for Wilshere to rise to prominence.
