Jack Wilshere profileHaving experienced a sensational first-team breakthrough in 2010/11, last season proved to be a major disappointment for Jack as injury ruled him out of the entire campaign. Not only that, but his dreams of competing for England at Euro 2012 were dashed too. It was a major blow for the midfielder following such a thrilling debut season, but Jack’s long-awaited return will be a major boost for Arsène Wenger this term.
Seen as arguably the most exciting young English midfielder of his generation, Jack has been with the Club since the age of nine and was a key member of the 2009 FA Youth Cup-winning side. Since then his rate of progression has been nothing short of exceptional, and when he stepped up into the first team he immediately caught the eye with a string of fine displays.
His debut season saw him make 49 appearances in all competitions, and it came as no surprise when he won the PFA Young Player of the Year award. Jack also established himself in the England side too before injury struck, winning five caps for the national team. His return to action will be a source of pleasure to both Arsenal and England fans everywhere.
