Jack Wilshere talks Mesut Ozil’s Arsenal exclusion, his ‘big club’ ambitions and evolving No 10s | Football News

Jack Wilshere has opened up to Sky Sports News about his feelings on Mesut Ozil’s exclusion at Arsenal, his ambitions to find a “big club” and to discuss why top-level, creative midfielders are “fading” out of modern football, in an exclusive interview.

Former Arsenal team-mates Wilshere and Ozil both find themselves watching this season’s events unfold from the outside in.

Wilshere is without a club after agreeing to terminate his contract with West Ham in October, while Ozil was a surprise omission from Mikel Arteta’s 25-man Premier League squad at the start of the campaign.

Arteta’s decision left a lot of people confused, Wilshere included. The Arsenal manager has put Ozil’s absence down to footballing reasons, but the scrutiny has only intensified with Arsenal’s continued struggle to score from open play.
