Samuel Lovett in the Independent has suggested West Ham are considering a season-long loan move for West Ham boy hood fan Jack Wilshere.
He claims the Hammers have made contact with Arsenal over the 25-year-old but have yet to submit a formal bid as they wait on the Sporting Lisbon player and an unlikely U-turn. Slaven Bilic is keen to sign a quality central midfielder for the season ahead but Carvalho’s £40m price-tag has been seen as a step too far between the Hammers and the Portuguese club.
In light of such developments, Lovett says the Hammers have turned their attention to Wilshere and could throw the Arsenal midfielder a lifeline after numerous seasons of setbacks. Arsenal are happy to release the Englishman on loan again and don’t see his contract as a priority. Wilshere has one year left on his current deal and will be ready to leave the Emirates as a free agent next summer.
The midfielder spent last season on-loan at Bournemouth and has only returned to fitness this month after breaking his leg in April of this year.
New reports suggest Harry Redknapp is ready to offer Jack a lifeline at Birmingham,
