English star Jack Wilshere in Istanbul for talks with Fenerbahce

Former Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere was spotted in Istanbul for negotiations with Turkish Super Lig giants Fenerbahce on Wednesday following his departure from Arsenal.

Jack Wilshere was spotted in Istanbul today, reportedly holding transfer talks with Super Lig powerhouse Fenerbahce.

The 26-year-old will become a free agent on July 1st after confirming his departure from the Emirates after 17-years due to a lack of guaranteed game time under Unai Emery, and the Yellow Canaries are eager to snap up the English star on a long term deal.

Wilshere was holding talks with Fenerbahçe in Istanbul and was given a guided tour of the club’s facilities as the Turksih outfit look to convince the England international to commit his future to the club.

Fenerbahce’s new president Ali Koc and sports director Damien Comolli – who is a former Arsenal scout – are hopeful of swaying Wilshere’s mind by outlining the new long-term vision of the club and offering an attractive pay packet as part of a three-year deal.

The player is reported to have shown interest in playing in Turkey and is to decide on his future in the coming days.
