Italian giants drop interest in Arsenal midfielder
Italian champions Juventus have reportedly ended their transfer interest in Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere. The England international has just two months left on his existing deal and he has been tipped to leave the Emirates in the summer.
The Bianconeri have been monitoring the midfielder's situation over the past few months but according to Calciomercato, they have switched their attention elsewhere after finding no breakthrough in negotiations.
Wilshere has yet to commit his future to the Gunners but Arsene Wenger has confirmed that a decision on his contract will be made before the summer World Cup in Russia.
The midfielder has not featured for the Three Lions in over 21 months, but he is being fancied to make the final World Cup squad after being called up recently by Gareth Southgate.
Wilshere missed the Gunners' 4-1 league win over West Ham United on Sunday with an ankle problem and he remains doubtful for the midweek Europa League semi-final first leg tie against Atletico Madrid.
