Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere is set to move to Italian side Roma on loan after BBC Sport have reported that a deal has been agreed between the Serie A giants and the England international.

The home-grown hero is not guaranteed first-team football at the Emirates Stadium and as such is set to leave the Gunners on a season-long loan deal this term.

Wilshere is believed to have had as many as 22 offers put to him as he looked to decide on a new employer for the campaign, but the Italian capital city outfit are believed to have won the race for his signature.

The gifted playmaker has struggled with perpetual injuries over recent years and as such Arsenal have been forced to move for reinforcements in the transfer window, with Mohamed Elneny and Granit Xhaka both moving to the North London club this year.

The latest report suggests that Arsenal are ready to send Wilshere to Roma for the campaign, where he will join fellow loanee Wojciech Szczesny and former team-mate Thomas Vermaelen.
