The confirmation came in, right before the end of the transfer window, with the club handing him the red and black shirt.

Chief Executive Neill Blake said: “Jack is a fantastic addition to the club. He is a player that needs no introduction and one that, quite rightly, our supporters will be excited to see in a Bournemouth shirt.”

“He will bring a wealth of international and Premier League experience, so we are delighted to be able to welcome a player of his calibre to the club.”

Wilshere has not been a regular figure in the Gunners first team and the club wanted him to find more regular action and regain his top form.

The England playmaker spent the entire last season on the sidelines and managed just three appearances due to multiple injuries. To fill in his absence the club roped in Mohamed Elneny and most recently, the Swiss midfielder Granit Xhaka.

The rise of Francis Coquelin saw Wilshere gradually go down the pecking order and a serious injury that he pulled up in November 2014, had kept him out for several months.
