Former England international goalkeeper Paul Robinson has admitted that he would be shocked if West Ham were to listen to offers for Jack Wilshere.
The midfielder joined the Hammers back in the summer of 2018, but injuries have often stopped him from showing his best form.
Indeed the England international has already missed 41 games for the club despite being there for less than two seasons due to two ankle problems and a groin injury (Transfermarkt).
Football Insider recently reported that West Ham were now willing to listen to offers for Wilshere. But Robinson has suggested that the ex-Arsenal man can still contribute at that perhaps the club shouldn’t look to sell him.
When discussing West Ham potentially moving Wilshere on, Robinson told Football Insider: “He’s 27, he’s still got plenty to give.
“I’d be absolutely astounded if West Ham were to listen to offers for him. I think when he’s fit and playing well, he’s a quality player who would fit into a lot of Premier League sides.
“I’d be amazed if West Ham were to listen to offers for him.”
Whilst you cannot argue that Wilshere hasn’t played enough games due to injury, there is no doubting that he has ability.
If West Ham could get him fit then he would definitely improve them in central midfield, a position they have struggled with recently with only Declan Rice and Mark Noble playing regularly (Transfermarkt).
At 27-years-old, Wilshere should be entering his peak years now so it may well be worthwhile for the Hammers to persist with him for a little while longer.
West Ham fans, would you be disappointed if the club allowed Jack Wilshere to move on? Or do you think it is time for him to leave? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below…
