Jack Wilshere may be approaching a make or break situation on his Hammers future should he be unable to make a full recovery from his injury problems!
Manager Manuel Pellegrini revealed yesterday it was hoped an evaluation next week would make the player’s situation clearer.
Absent from action since December he will be given time to recover from his current problems but should they, and the general uncertainty surrounding them continue, could lead the club towards making a crucial judgement.
And that could well include a pay off if a suitable compensation package could be put together which were to prove mutually agreeable.
In assessing the situation manager Manuel Pellegrini said at his pre-Fulham presser: “We will evaluate him next week and then we will be more clear about his future.”
There are now concerns the former Gunner’s season may be over and were fears of an ongoing problem to emerge a compensation offer and contract termination could be a consideration.
Wilshere was signed on a free to cover for Manu Lanzini but with the Argentinian now fit, Samir Nasri set for another year on the squad and Andriy Yarmolenko recovering, the former Gunner’s position looks precarious.
He is on a deal currently worth £10 million in wages over the next two years and were the Irons to offer around £7 million a deal could be possibly be done in a worst case scenario.
