AFC Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe has declared his interest in signing Jack Wilshere permanently.
Wilshere is currently enjoying himself at the Dean Court and has been influential for Howe’s men since his summer loan move.
Last week, reports claimed his long-term future was clouded with uncertainty as Arsenal are yet to decide whether to renew his contract.
In an interview with Sky Sport, Howe has now revealed his desire to sign the midfielder permanently but said no talks have been held with Arsenal over a potential transfer.
“We would love that[signing Jack permanently] to happen, he said.
“I can’t rate Jack enough as a footballer, as a person, how he has come into the team and what he has delivered for us, but there has been no discussion with Arsenal.
“As I see it, Jack is on loan for the season and then we will look at it and Jack will look at it.”
While it is only normal for Bournemouth to be interested in signing the midfielder permanently, it is unlikely that Wenger would sanction such deal.
The boss has always stressed that Wilshere’s long-term future is at the Emirates and I expect it to be so.
Gooners may be worried by the constant speculations surrounding the England international future but I don’t think there is any reason to worry. Talks to extend his contract will commence when he returns to the Emirates at the end of the season and as an Arsenal man that he is, he is expected to sign a new deal.
Wilshere has featured in 21 of Bournemouth’s 24 league games this season and has two assists to his name.
