Jack Wilshere could quit Arsenal in search of trophies – Arjen Robben
Bayern Munich's Arjen Robben reckons Jack Wilshere could leave Arsenal if the north London side fail to end their trophy drought
Arjen Robben believes that Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere could leave if the Gunners fail to end their trophy drought.
The England international was one of the only Arsenal players to receive praise after a 3-1 loss to Bayern Munich in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie on Wednesday.
The Bundesliga outfit’s win leaves Arsene Wenger’s men on the verge of elimination, having already made premature exits in the FA Cup and League Cup.
Wilshere penned a new long-term contract along with four of his team-mates in December – but Robben claims that Arsenal could struggle to keep hold of the 21-year-old in years to come.
“I don’t know if Arsenal can keep him if they are not winning things,” said Robben. “It’s always difficult to judge that about another player.
“But you can see that Wilshere is a very big talent and he is only young still. He’s just 21 years old. He will definitely be a big player.”
Wilshere has scored five goals in 85 appearances for Arsenal after making his first-team debut against Blackburn Rovers in September 2008.
