Report: Wilshere on Pellegrini wanted list

Jack Wilshere is tonight being reported as having had face to face talks with Manuel Pellegrini over a move to West Ham.

The former England midfielder is also being chased by Fenerbache but in a widely reported piece it seems that the player is fancied by the new Hammers management.

The Mirror reports: “The Istanbul club have already made a huge offer, while West Ham are now putting a package together they hope will persuade Wilshere to stay in London and the Premier League.

New boss Pellegrini has outlined his plans and they are expected to come back with a concrete offer. Wilshere is likely to wait on West Ham before making a final decision.”

It’s not clear where the evidence of the “huge” offer has arisen from although such a turn of phrase is one often favoured by agents when promoting their client’s cause.

However, given that Wilshere has already turned down £130k a week from Arsenal – a decision which allowed him to become a free agent -one wonders how to interpret the word in these circumstances.

It seems more likely that a move across London would suit the player better although before any offer were made the player would in all probability need to undergo an exhaustive medical given his injury history.

  1. One year deal only until Manu comes back too slow for me and injury doubts but as a free for a year would be fine

  2. Yes one year on a free is a no brainer. Cover for Lanzini. Injury risk but so is every player. Look at Lanzini, Antonio, obiang, Cresswell, Reid, Carroll, etc. I heard he turned down 100k a week at Arsenal because emery couldn’t promise him game time. We can definitely offer him game time. At least until he gets injured. Lol.

  3. Yes but only pay as you play deal
    NO if it means that don’t bring in another midfielder to replace him when he gets injured which he will and it wont be short term with him ,we will be trying to get sturridge next
