Bournemouth’s interest in signing Arsenal loanee Jack Wilshere on a permanent basis appears to be cooling.

Cherries chief Eddie Howe admitted last month that he was keen on turning Wilshere’s temporary switch into a permanent one, but it would now appear that he is having second thoughts, according to a report in The Sun.

The 25-year-old England international has been left out of Bournemouth’s last two starting line-ups, although he did impress in the weekend win over West Ham after coming off the bench.

Howe admits that Wilshere’s benching has come because of a change of tactics, but still praised the midfielder: “Jack is the ultimate professional.

“Tactically we have gone with two strikers, but he has shown with his attitude when he has come on how he has reacted.”

Wilshere admitted on Monday that he was unsure where he would be playing his football next season, and it would appear that Bournemouth is becoming less of a likely destination.
