Jack Wilshere 'plots mid-season Arsenal exit' amid West Ham and Palace links

Jack Wilshere 'plots mid-season Arsenal exit' amid West Ham and Palace links

However, he has had many injuries in a past eight years since then.

The Gunners' No.10 has not played for England since the 2-1 defeat to Iceland at last year's European Championships and is also yet to play for Arsenal in the Premier League this season.

The 25-year-old midfielder is desperate to get into Gareth Southgate's England thinking for next summer's World Cup and he is prepared to risk his long-term future at The Emirates to do so. However, to earn a recall to play for his country, he needs to have game time in his club.

Arsene Wenger slapped a £20m price tag on the midfielder in the summer when Slaven Bilic previously showed interest in his services, but with his contract expiring in the summer, a cut price will surely be available for Wilshere.


Wilshere is well aware time is precious if he is to get back into the plans of Southgate and he will be hoping for a chance to shine against Germany and Brazil in two friendlies next month, when Southgate is expected to make some experimental changes.

Is Wilshere a good idea for West Ham?

On the other hand, I do not think Wilshere could be capable of being in Bilic's staring 11.

"He has played games for us and he will play many more". If he moves to East-London it would be nearly the same thing and he would be frustrated again.

The England global has said that the 3-4-3 formation allows the ball to be played further up the pitch, much like the side that went the entire league season without defeat. But if he joins it'll increase the Irons' level and they would be more prepared to do a better campaign in the Premier League.
