Jack Wilshere has been told he can look for a new club this summer as he has one year left on his current deal and the Gunners are ready to cut their losses and take the England international off their wage bill.
The midfielder appears not to lack suitors from all around Europe, and have been targeted by an unlikely team, Turkish Super Lig side, Antalyaspor.
The ambitious Turks have made contact with the Gunners over the possibility of landing Wilshere, whose career has been plagued by injuries, and are hoping to sign him from under the noses of his other suitors.
Wilshere spent last season on loan at Bournemouth and made 26 stable but unspectacular appearances for the Cherries, but they decided not to make the move permanent.
Arsene Wenger likes Wilshere and would love to renew his current deal, but after the disappointment of missing out on Champions League football last season, the Gunners cannot afford to keep players who make small or no contribution to the team.
Antalyaspor president claims they have opened talks with Arsenal, but the Gunners want a huge transfer fee for Wilshere, which could scupper their bid to sign him.
Wilshere would need a lot of convincing and a total lack of suitors to move to Turkey as he just started a family.
