Celtic: Alan Brazil’s drops Jack Wilshere transfer claim

Celtic: Alan Brazil’s drops Jack Wilshere transfer claim -Celtic

TalkSPORT broadcaster Alan Brazil has backed free-agent Jack Wilshere to make Celtic his new club, The Daily Record report.

The Lowdown: Wilshere without a club

Wilshere has been without a club since the summer after leaving Championship side Bournemouth.

The 29-year-old, who has scored 20 goals during his senior career, was recently training with Italian side Como.

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta admitted earlier this month that the Gunners have been in conversation with their former midfielder in regards to helping him find a new club, and Brazil thinks Celtic Park could be the ideal destination.

Would you take Wilshere at Celtic?

Yes, he's quality on his day!

The Latest: Brazil’s comments

Brazil was talking on-air during talkSPORT’s morning show, relayed by The Daily Record, to which he backed Wilshere to move to Glasgow.

“By the way, Scottish football’s not slow you know.

“It’s lively up there, as one or two people have found out when they’ve gone up there.

“But I think the Celtic fans would take to him if he found his form, with his dribbling skills and taking the ball and running at defenders.

“I think they’d give him a chance, they really would.”

The Verdict: A risk?

Celtic have already landed a central midfielder on a free this summer in James McCarthy, however, the Irishman has reportedly been struggling in Ange Postecoglou’s intense training sessions.

On that basis, bringing Wilshere, who can play in three different midfield roles, could be a risk going off his injury history.

The last thing the Hoops would want is to sign the England international, only for him to repeat McCarthy’s struggle and possibly get injured at Lennoxtown.

However, a possible pay as you play move could be a shrewd idea given his versatility and experience at the top level.
