Arsenal are keen to allow Jack Wilshere to leave on loan this summer before the end of the transfer window to allow him to get more game time. The midfielder has made two substitute appearances this season after missing the entirety of last year with a broken leg.

Sky Sports reports that the 24-year-old will find minutes hard to come by and is willing to sanction a move out of the club, especially after the north London club completed the signing of Granit Xhaka, having already brought Mohamed Elneny from Basel in January. The Gunners are spoilt for choice in midfield, with the likes of Francis Coquelin, Santi Cazorla and Aaron Ramsey also vying for two spots behind Mesut Ozil's preferred number 10 position.

Wilshere was kept out of the England squad for the World Cup Qualifiers by new manager Sam Allardyce and reiterated that the decision to do so was based on current form, with Wilshere not having too much of game time. However, he stressed that the situation would change should Wilshere carve a place for himself in the first team.

"Jack just hasn't had enough game time. Hopefully he will get that in the future at Arsenal," said Allardyce. "If Jack Wilshere was playing every week for Arsenal he would be in the squad, but unfortunately he isn't.

"It is game time for him and it has been few and far between because he has had too many injuries unfortunately. It is a question of game time and the contribution he is making to Arsenal and he is not doing that at the moment, so I left him out," he added.

Meanwhile, the Gunners have all but completed deals for Shkodran Mustafi and Lucas Perez and are set to announce them before the end of the transfer window. The duo have completed their medicals but a confirmation is pending some paperwork, which should be done in the near future.
