One-time Rangers target leaves club after 136 days; linked with Arsenal move

One-time Rangers target Jack Wilshere is on the lookout for a new club again after leaving Danish outfit AGF Aarhus after only 136 days – and he could be in line for a stunning return to Arsenal.

The former England international was reported to have been in talks with the Light Blues last year after he was released by Bournemouth but a deal never materialised and Wilshere headed for Denmark.

However after only 14 league games, Wilshere has parted ways and took to Instagram to confirm he was considering his options, saying: “My time at AGF has come to an end.

“Myself and the club have mutually agreed it’s best for me to move on. I would like to thank everybody at AGF for the support and confidence they gave me from day 1.

“The club showed trust in me that not many others were willing to give. Although results were hard to come by the fans support of me and the team was unbelievable. Thank you guys for welcoming me into your club and city. I wish you all the best in the future. Personally I am considering all of my options.”

The midfielder could be set for a sensational return to former club Arsenal in a coaching capacity amid suggestions that they have reportedly held talks with Wilshere as they look to fill their vacant Under-23 and Under-18 head coach positions.

Wilshere should probably call it quits after career decline

With a reported coaching offer from Arsenal, it is Wilshere’s best option with his playing career only going to continue to decline.

Although Rangers never signed Wilshere, they jumped out of the frying pan and into the fire when they instead signed his equally-as-injury-prone former teammate Aaron Ramsey.

At only 30, it’s a shame to have seen Wilshere’s career go the way it has and, hopefully, a move into coaching lets him contribute back to football.
