Manchester City set to turn to Arsenal for midfield star

Wilshere 3The Daily Mirror have managed to get Arsenal fans looking fairly irate here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they seem to think that Manchester City are set to swoop for Jack Wilshere.

As one of our punters notes, when fit, there is no denying the midfielder is a quality player, but his nationality and fact he is a home-grown player also appeals to City, who are desperate to get their quota of English players up and want to make a £30 million bid to Arsenal to make that happen.

We think that Wilshere would take some convincing to leave the club he clearly loves, if only because the opportunity to troll Tottenham Hotspur would be gone, and not only would Arsene Wenger resist any move for one of his key players, the fans would certainly go mad if another one of their stars ended up at the Etihad Stadium.

Arsenal fans. Is a bid for Wilshere imminent? Will Wenger sell? Let us know your thoughts below.
