Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger plans talks with England coach Roy Hodgson over Jack Wilshere's fitness programme.

The Daily Mail says England face the Republic of Ireland on May 29 - 10 days after Arsenal's final game of the season against Newcastle - before travelling to Rio de Janeiro to face Brazil on June 6.

Both games are friendlies and Arsenal manager Wenger is keen to liaise with Hodgson and the FA to establish a clear plan of how his midfielder should be utilised.

Wenger was disappointed Wilshere played the full 90 minutes of the 2-1 friendly win over Brazil in February and, understandably, wants to avoid a similar scenario during the summer internationals.
