Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere believes striker Carlos Vela would benefit from a loan spell with Bolton in the same way he did after joining the Wanderers last season.
Speaking to Arsenal TV Online after the win over Wigan on Saturday, the 19-year old explained there is a lot of competition in the offensive department which is ultimately good for the team. With manager Owen Coyle revealing an offer was made by the Club for the Mexican, Wilshere added how Bolton play nice football, have a great manager and would be a good solution for the striker.
Asked about tonight’s game against Ipswich Town, Wilshere believes what is needed for the Gunners to go through is an early goal as it would open the Blues and make it easy for Arsenal who could go on and score a lot of goals.
Having lost the game at Portman Road by one goal to nil, Arsenal desperately need a top class performance to reach the Carling Cup Final where they would face Birmingham City or West Ham United in the February 27 Final, at Wembley.
On Vela and Ipswich, Wilshere said:
There’s so much competition [in the offensive department]. Carlos Vela might go out on loan, he’s a top class player and that shows the competition at Arsenal. It’s always good to have healthy competition and we need to take advantage of that.
For me [the loan to Bolton] was great. It changed me completely, it changed my mind and made me more experienced, came back here and got in the team. The manager is brilliant, they play nice football so he could fit in the team.
[Tuesday] is massive for the fans. We want to win something, we’re one nil down, we just have to go at them and try to get an early goal and then hopefully get four or five. We know we’re going to create chances. We created chances against City, we created today [against Wigan], we just have to put them away.
