Wilshere comment gets rumours running


WilshireA comment by Jack Wilshere to Joe Hart on social media has got rumours running the Arsenal midfielder could be joining the Man City stopper at the London Stadium this summer.

Joe Hart posted a photo of himself on instagram in First class on a Virgin train saying “On route to the next adventure”

Jack Wilshere replied “See you in London soon”

Wilshere has been linked with a loan move to West Ham for sometime and earlier this year Slaven Bilic said “If you are talking about Jack Wilshere as a player that’s different. Of course he is a great player with great ability but because of injures had a setback, had to go on loan to Bournemouth but he’s a great player at a great age.”

JackThe player recently said in an interview “There were a lot of midfielders and the manager brought another one in,” adding  “I want to put myself in a position where I go back next year and I’m a better player, and I’m fitter, and I can prove to people I can play week in, week out, and I’m ready for the challenge.”

West Ham has consistently been the bookies favourities to sign the boyhood West Ham fan who once posted a photo of himself in a West Ham shirt as a child.

Whether Wilshere just plans to meet up with former England mate in London for a coffee or whether the comment is a hint at the possibility of him joining the Hammers this summer only time will tell but he appears to have all but confirmed Joe Hart’s intentions.

    Gary Lewin should know more about Jack Wilshere and his fitness issues than anybody – you would hope his views and knowledge would be used in deciding whether to ‘gamble’ on him!

    You can’t deny he is a good player but the obvious ‘elephant in the room’ is his fitness – it’s a risk, we’ve got enough players with fitness issues – do we need to take the gamble?

  • schuauthing says:

    Rumors about what? Wilshire is back at Arsenal so in London. How has anyone managed to deduce that his comment suggests he’s coming to us?

  • markro says:

    Wiltshire, Won’tshire – who knows?

  • essexirons says:

    Good player when 100% fit unfortunately that hasn’t been the case over the few seasons.
    Imo too risky unless free signing & pay-as-you-play deal. No chance then..

  • JRS says:

    Hopefully all agree last thing we need is another high waged player who can not stay fit.
    And he was ok at Bournemouth before another injury but not the Wilshere he was.
    Money better spent wake where like I don’t know on a striker

  • JRS says:

    This is all over hopefully it is true why we waited until Chelsea where interested I don’t knowni guess it’s the Sullivan way.
