Jamie Redknapp believes Jack Wilshere should forget about salvaging his Arsenal career.

The England international moved to Bournemouth on a season-long loan in the summer transfer window as Wilshere looked to secure regular first-team football.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger signed Granit Xhaka in a £33m deal from Bundesliga club Borussia Monchengladbach in the summer transfer window to nudge Wilshere further down the pecking order at the Emirates Stadium.

The 24-year-old did his parent club a favour on Saturday afternoon as Wilshere helped Bournemouth battle to a goalless draw with title contenders Tottenham Hotspur at the Vitality Stadium.

Former Liverpool midfielder Redknapp believes Wilshere was too comfortable at the north London club following an injury-hit couple of seasons.

“I don’t see a future at Arsenal any more, I think now he will realise he has got to get away from Arsenal,” Redknapp told Sky Sports.

“It’s too comfortable for him there. He is not going to get into the team at Arsenal regularly.

“If he makes that move he can show what he is all about. No disrespect, I think he’s a step above Bournemouth, but I think it’s a great thing for him to do. He’s really putting himself out there.”

Wilshere has made six Premier League appearances for the south coast club in the 2016-17 season so far.

The England man has completed 414 minutes of first-team football in Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth line-up.
