Arsene Wenger begs Gareth Southgate to recall Jack Wilshere to England squad

Injury-plagued Jack Wilshere is ready for a return to the England squad despite featuring sparingly this season, Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger decalred today.

Wilshere's Arsenal contract expires at the end of the season and, having played just 13 minutes of Premier League football, Wenger still wants to see more before potentially opening discussions over a new deal next month.

Wilshere's last England cap came as a substitute in the shock 2-1 defeat to Iceland at Euro 2016 which led to Roy Hodgson's departure as manager.

Furthermore, he had used the preview to tonight's match to urge Southgate to consider the long-term benefits of welcoming Wilshere back into the worldwide fold for the first time since this time a year ago, when he was an unused substitute for the games against Scotland and Spain while on loan at Bournemouth. Wilshere has not played for England since the defeat by Iceland at the European Championships past year.

He works hard within the team and with his pace and movement is becoming a great foil for the creative abilities of the German, who spoke about his new teammate this week in glowing terms, reported by The Mirror, when asked to compare Lacazette with Ozil's former strike partner Karim Benzema who is alsio a rival for the position of forward in the France national team.

"Now he feels as well - and nobody knows better than you do yourself - that he has found that little bit of sharpness that is decided in the first two yards".

"Personally, I think he's ready".

Arsene Wenger says Sead Kolasinac could be fit for Sunday's match at Manchester City and that the wing-back's hip problem is "not as bad as we could fear at the start". He's in a very good way. I would encourage [Southgate] to do it. "I don't know how you can keep a super-fit Jack out of the England squad". "Since three weeks, he is treated like any other player".

Wilshere has made himself a regular for Arsenal in the Carabao Cup and Europa League, a run he is likely to continue against Red Star Belgrade at the Emirates tomorrow evening.

"I must say he's 100 per cent a professional player".
