The 26-year-old has had a torrid time with injuries in seasons gone by as they continue to bring his career to a halt. Although, since returning back to the Arsenal side, he’s shown moments of brilliance that may even reward him with a World Cup spot.
After being tipped as the future of English football as a youngster, he’s yet to have the chance to impress. But, now back in the Gunners side he’s been given the freedom of the midfield, in a role that’s seen him establish himself as one of England’s and Arsenal’s brightest hopes.
Indeed, West Ham are crying out for a midfielder like Jack Wilshere, with Mark Noble struggling to carry the load by himself. And, the stamina that the midfielder can provide would work wonders in supporting the likes of Marko Arnautovic at the pinnacle of the attack.
However, the Englishman is reportedly going to have to take a 20% pay-cut if he is to sign a new contract with the Gunners in the summer. So with West Ham having the financial backing, this could be a great coup if they can conjure up £110,000 for his current wage, or attempt to sign him for a reduced price this window.Like what the TT have on offer?
