Galatasaray To Request Detailed Medical Report For Jack Wilshere Before Making Move

Turkish side Galatasaray are keen on bringing Jack Wilshere to the club this summer, but will request a detailed medical report before making a move.

The West Ham midfielder has struggled with injuries for the majority of his career. In fact, last year, the 28-year-old said he was on the verge of quitting football entirely due to injury issues and his son's epilepsy.

Wilshere, who has barely featured for The Hammers since making a move across London in 2018, was also sidelined for long spells last season, making just ten appearances in all competitions.

More recently, West Ham manager David Moyes revealed the former Arsenal man, who was set to feature on Tuesday night against Charlton in the Carabao Cup, suffered another setback after rolling his ankle in training.

Moyes later said he 'doesn't know' if Wilshere will remain a West Ham player as a potential transfer looms.

One club who are interested in his signature are Super Lig side Galatasaray, according to Turkish newspaper Karar.

They report that the Turkish outfit are looking at the West Ham midfielder but will request a medical report before making a move.

It is believed the Istanbul-based side are currently in the market for another midfielder after Oghenekaro Etebo joined from Championship side Stoke City on loan.

In terms of Wilshere's bad luck when it comes to injuries, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta said the player "could have been phenomenal" if it wasn't for the the sheer amount of lay-offs in his career.

"It's very sad with Jack," said Arteta. "When I joined here and watched him play every day in training and everything he had, you could say he could be one of the best midfielders, but he always had something.

"He has started to build again a career and then again another injury, another setback, and it was disappointment.

"I was very impressed with Jack, how strong he is mentally to deal with the situation, because as well he had a lot of pressure from the media because expectations for him were big, but it is what it is. He could have been phenomenal."
