Turkish news blog reported yesterday that Arsenal ace Jack Wilshere travelled to Turkey where he has reportedly held talks with Fenerbahce.
It’s believed the England international travelled to Istanbul on a private jet along with Philip Cocu who was officially appointed the Turkish giants new manager. The report adds that Wilshere’s representatives Wasserman COO Fahri Ecvet and agent Neil Fewings were also present.
Report emerges that Fenerbahce have offered a three-year contract worth in the region of €4 million-per-season (€769,23.07 per week) with a €5m sign-on fee for the signing of Wilshere this summer.
However, there are still a number of issues surrounding the transfer of the England midfielder to Turkey as he’s having concerns over resettling his family and playing abroad.
Should Wilshere agree to the move, the Turkish club will be expected to make announcement early next week. Wilshere had already confirmed he will be leaving Arsenal after 17 years at the club on his official Instagram account.
The 26-year-old will be a free agent from Arsenal in 1 July 2018.
