Representatives for Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere have reportedly offered the player to Paris Saint-Germain.
According to L'Equipe (h/t Naveen Ullal of Sport Witness), there have been discussions about the switch in "recent hours" between the Wilshere camp and PSG director of football Antero Henrique, with the England international's contract at Arsenal set to expire in June.
Sport Witness noted Wilshere's future may lie away from England, with no sign of an extension to his deal at the Emirates Stadium being agreed.
It's been an intriguing season for Wilshere that may yet have an interesting climax. On the positive front, he's been able to play regular football at a high level again, with previous seasons blighted by injury problems.
Despite that, his form tailed off late in the campaign, and he didn't manage to make it into England's 2018 FIFA World Cup squad.
Wilshere said via social media he believes he deserved to be in contention:
James Benge of the Evening Standard also believes the Arsenal man was unlucky to miss out:
A report from John Cross of the Daily Mirror earlier in May said the north London outfit were confident Wilshere would agree an extension, with the two parties previously in disagreement over the wages the 26-year-old should be paid.
A switch to PSG would be a surprise, although there may be reasons why the French side would consider the move. After all, Thiago Motta will retire at the end of this season, while Lassana Diarra is reaching the twilight of his career.
Jonathan Johnson of ESPN FC doesn't feel as though this rumour has much to it:
While midfield may not be PSG's strongest area, they have quality in central areas. In Adrien Rabiot, they already boast someone with similar attributes to Wilshere; he is also box-to-box, left-sided and happy to take on opponents. Marco Verratti is world-class at his best too.
If Wilshere leaves Arsenal at the end of the campaign, he needs to make a considered decision and one that will lead to more first-team opportunities. For all the progress made, he only started 12 Premier League matches for the Gunners.
At PSG, he would likely be lavishly paid, part of a winning squad and living in one of the most picturesque places in Europe. But for someone who has spent far too long on the sidelines in recent years, that may not be enough to offset more time on the fringes of a first XI.
