The Daily Star reports that out-of-favour Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere is willing to call time on his Emirates stay in order to move to West Ham in January.
Frequent injuries have stagnated what was meant to be a bright career for the English midfielder, and his dreams of playing at next year’s World Cup are in jeopardy as a result.
Wilshere has managed to keep fit in the last 3 months, though, but is still a long shot from forcing himself into manager Arsene Wenger’s first team plans.
West Ham attempted to bring the 25-year-old to the London Stadium on loan during the summer, but a £20million fee saw a move broke down.
With less than 12 months left until his contract expires, Arsenal will be looking to only sell Wilshere should he push for an exit.
Signing on a quality playmaker in the shape of the English midfielder will without a doubt boost West Ham’s goalscoring chances.
While his injury problems make him a risk signing, Wilshere’s quality makes a move a gamble worth taking for the Hammers.
Provided he manages to stay fit, he has everything it takes to fire them to a top 10 finish, and landing him is bound to greatly improve West Ham’s fortunes going forward.
