Jack Wilshere has not ruled out a move abroad following his departure from Arsenal.
The 26-year-old confirmed he would leave the north London club, where he has played since 2001, a week ago and was on Arsenal’s released list on Friday, which included Santi Cazorla and defender Per Mertesacker – who was offered a coaching role at the end of last season.
Speaking to Sky Sports News after filming A League of Your Own, Wilshere said: “I am willing to go abroad if the right opportunity comes up. Also, everyone knows I like the Premier League and the battle of it.
“I have played 10 years as a professional there and had 17 years at the club. We are looking at things and I am keeping myself fit. So if something does come up I am ready to go.”
Wilshere has been linked with a number of clubs with Fenerbahce reportedly the latest club vying for his signature. Reports have also suggested Premier League sides Fulham, Crystal Palace, West Ham, Everton and Wolves are interested.
