Gareth Southgate has stated that the only way Jack Wilshere will return to the England squad is if he plays more matches for Arsenal.
The England international midfielder was tipped to enter the England squad after impressing in the Europa, by Wenger.
However, Wilshere has missed out of the November friendlies and Southgate says he will speak to Wenger, but says the midfielder must play.
“I don’t know how you get in an England squad without getting in the Arsenal team,” he told a news conference when asked about Wilshere, who has only made one appearance as a second-half substitute in the Premier League this season.
“There is no question about his ability, his football brain or personality, we just need to see him playing before he comes back in because unfortunately there has been a history of injuries.
“I’ll be having discussions with Arsene about him, we think he is a top player so for him it’s about game time.”
