Arsenal midfielder, currently on loan at Bournemouth, will miss the rest of the season after scans confirmed he suffered a broken fibula in the Cherries’ loss to Tottenham.
The 25-year-old collided with Harry Kane in the second half of their match on Saturday, leaving the pitch in pains.
Scans later showed that Wilshere suffered a hairline crack to his left fibula — a similar injury to that which kept him out for the majority of last season.
“We can confirm that Jack Wilshere has suffered a fractured left fibula,” Arsenal said in a statement.
“The midfielder, who is on a season-long loan at AFC Bournemouth, sustained the injury during the Cherries’ Premier League match at Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday. X-rays taken after the game were clear, but further scans showed a hairline crack in the fibula.
“Jack will undergo further specialist assessments in the forthcoming days to identify more specifics regarding the injury and also to structure a rehabilitation programme. It is hoped that Jack will be fit for the start of next season.
“Everyone at the club wishes Jack a speedy recovery.”
Wilshere is yet to be offered a new contract at the Emirates Stadium. He made 29 league appearances for Eddie Howe’s men since joining in August.
