Arsenal are prepared to allow Jack Wilshere to leave the club on loan this season to get regular first-team football.

Wilshere has been limited to two Premier League appearances off the bench so far this season after his pre-season campaign was slowed by a knee injury.

Arsenal have two days to find a suitor for Wilshere with the transfer deadline looming – the summer window closes at 11pm on Wednesday.

The 24-year-old was also left out of Sam Allardyce’s first England squad, named on Sunday, and he revealed Wilshere would have to be playing regular football to get back into contention for an international recall, although he expected that to be with his current club.

Wilshere missed the majority of the 2015-16 season with a broken leg and competition for places in the Arsenal midfield has only been increased by Arsene Wenger’s transfer business over the last nine months.

Wenger signed Egypt international Mohamed Elneny from Basel in the January transfer window and spent 34million pounds to bring Switzerland star Granit Xhaka to the club earlier in the summer.


.West Brom have bid 21million pounds for Sporting Lisbon midfielder William Carvalho.

Leicester have had a 25million pounds bid for Islam Slimani turned down by Sporting Lisbon.

.Arsenal’s Serge Gnabry will join Bayern Munich permanently before spending the rest of this season on loan at Werder Bremen.

.Danny Ings is reportedly set to stay at Liverpool, rather than head out on loan.

Everton have made a revised 21million pounds offer for Napoli striker Manolo Gabbiadini.

Crystal Palace have turned down an increased 18million pounds offer from Tottenham for winger Wilfried Zaha. Palace want a fee similar to the 25 million pounds Everton paid for DR Congo winger Yannick Bolasie.

West Ham and Everton have both made offers for Manchester City and Ivory Coast striker Wilfried Bony.

. Liverpool have submitted a 30 million pounds bid for Gremio and Brazil forward Luan. Manchester United had also been linked with a move for the Olympic gold medallist.

.Chelsea are close to agreeing deals for Inter Milan and Croatia midfielder Marcelo Brozovic, and left-back Marcos Alonso,  from Fiorentina.

. Hull City and Marseille are lining up bids for Aston Villa forward Jordan Ayew.

.Porto’s attacking midfielder Yacine Brahimi could be the final piece of the jigsaw for Everton.

. Liverpool have told Mamadou Sakho he must find another club before the transfer window closes if he wants to play any football this season.


Paris Saint-Germain are ready to blow Arsenal out of the water and pay 64 million pounds for Julian Draxler.

Mario Balotelli looks set to draw a line through his Liverpool career by moving to Nice.
