Does Wilshere need to leave to make the World Cup?

However, many feel to return to the England fold and fly to Russian Federation next summer as part of the World Cup squad Wilshere needs to be playing week-in-week-out and could have to leave Arsenal in January to offer himself the opportunity.

And he has told the player he will get the game time he needs at Arsenal to work his way into World Cup contention.

Arsene Wenger has assured Jack Wilshere he does not have to leave Arsenal to secure a spot in England's World Cup squad.

'I don't think he has to leave.

Since recovering from a fractured leg sustained during his loan spell with Bournemouth last season, Wilshere has impressed and starred during the Gunners 4-2 victory over BATE Borisov in the Europa League. He's very close now to be considered like anyone else.

When asked recently about his preferred position for Arsenal, Wilshere said: "I can play in the deeper midfield role, which I did against Doncaster, and then I went and played on the left".

"If he keeps going like he is he will go the World Cup".

Boss Gareth Southgate warned Wilshere he has to be "playing at a good level" to return to the fray.

Wilshere though has not played for his country since coming on as a half-time sub during last year's disastrous European Championship defeat to Iceland.

"If you look at the numbers after the game, I've been out for four months but I'm not the one who hasn't ran the most".

The 25-year-old made a full recovery from a broken leg prior to the global break, playing the full 90 minutes in the Carabao Cup win over Doncaster Rovers and in the Europa League success at BATE Borisov. "He can play in tight areas".
