Jack Wilshere has hinted that his time at Arsenal is coming to the close, with a cryptic social media post suggesting that he will soon be “turning the page”.

The 26-year-old midfielder is a product of the Gunners’ academy system, with a Premier League debut made back in September 2008.

A decade of loyal service in north London has delivered close to 200 appearances, along with loan spells at Bolton and Bournemouth.

Wilshere could, however, be about to bid farewell, with his current contract continuing to run down.

Arsene Wenger had stated on a regular basis prior to his departure from Emirates Stadium that he expected fresh terms to be agreed, but no deal has been done.

That means the England international remains on course to drop into the free agent pool at the end of June.

He will then be able to choose from any of the offers put to him when it comes to a next career move, with various landing spots – from AC Milan to West Ham – having been mooted.

A serious hint at “closing the book” would suggest that Wilshere’s adventure at Arsenal is all but over.
