Piers Morgan 'would love' Jack Wilshere to return to Arsenal and reveals former star is 'fit and training well'
PIERS MORGAN reckons Jack Wilshire can solve Arsenal's current problems in midfield.
Big Gunners fan Morgan also revealed on Twitter that the unattached former England star is training well and 'desperate to get playing again.'
Sun columnist Morgan was responding to an open question tweeted by The Athletic.
It pointed out that the Gunners had been left short in central midfield due to Africa Cup of Nations call-ups for Ghana's Thomas Partey and Egypt's Mohamed Elneny.
And it asked if getting Wilshire back on a short-term deal 'would be such a crazy idea?'
Morgan replied: "No! Would love to see @JackWilshire back in an Arsenal shirt.
"Spoke to him recently and he's fit, training well and desperate to get playing again."
Wilshire has has been a free agent since being released by Bournemouth at the end of last season.
