With the clock ticking before the transfer window closes, English Premier League duo Watford and Bournemouth have been reported to be among the potential suitors for Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere on deadline day.

The 24-year-old is understood to be available on loan after undergoing talks with Arsenal boss Arsen Wenger earlier this week.

Race, options

The Gunners are keen for the injury-plagued midfielder to get his career back on track, but cannot guarantee him regular first-team football due to the level of competition for places at the club. Crystal Palace are also thought to have registered an interest in the England international, and Sky Sports News also claims that Watford and Bournemouth have now entered the race too. Wilshere has options abroad as well, with the likes of Juventus, Roma, Sporting Libson and Benfica considering a move.

Wilshere, who missed out on a place in Sam Allardyce's England squad to face Slovakia on Sunday, has been limited to just two substitute appearances so far this season.
