Jack Wilshere has been linked with a move to Fenerbahce, as his contract with Arsenal expires on June 30th.
The midfielder has already announced his intention to depart the club after 17 years of service, and it was thought he’d continue his career in the Premier League.
However, the 26 year old has reportedly been spotted in Istanbul, and linked with all three of the big clubs there: Besiktas, Galatasaray, and Fenerbahce.
The latter are apparently favourites to secure his signing, although as ever we’d urge caution when it comes to transfer stories linking players to Turkish clubs.
Perhaps more than any other country, the press there talk about deals being on the verge of completion, only for nothing to happen. Either there are a lot of last minute snags when it comes to making transfers there, or the transfer tittle-tattle is even more fictitious than it is anywhere else.
It would be a strange move for Wilshere who, despite being left out of the World Cup, still harbours England ambitions, and it would be hard to impress from such a distance.
He was in Berlin this week too, and he has been travelling, so let’s see where this one ends up.
