 Exclusive: Mikel Arteta says ‘door is always open’ for Jack Wilshere to return to train with Arsenal as free agent searches for new club


Mikel Arteta has opened the door for Jack Wilshere to train at Arsenal as the free agent searches for a new club.

The 29-year-old has been unable to find a new club since leaving Bournemouth at the end of last season.

The 34-time England international has most recently spent a stint training with Serie B outfit Como.

Wilshere came through the ranks at Arsenal and made 197 first-team appearances between 2008 and when he left a decade later.

He won two FA Cups at the Emirates Stadium where he also became a firm favourite among the Arsenal fans.

During his time with the Gunners he played alongside Arteta in Arsene Wenger’s midfield and the current Arsenal manager appeared to offer an invitation to his former team-mate.

Asked if Wilshere could potentially train at their London Colney base, Arteta replied: “He is someone that I know who I shared the dressing room with, who is so loved around the club with every person here and our doors are always open.”

Arsenal sit bottom of the Premier League having lost their opening three matches without scoring.

They welcome Norwich, similarly without a point from their fixtures so far, to the Emirates Stadium on Saturday and Arteta admits it is an early “must-win” game for his side.

“It always is (must-win) at Arsenal and the pressure is always there to be as high as possible in that league table,” he said.

“We need the first win, we are going to play in front of our fans after a disappointing start, so it’s down to us to provide everything we have performance-wise to earn the result we want at the end.”
