Wolves set to scupper Hammers last chance

West Ham look set to miss out on Jack Wilshere should the midfielder make his long expected exit from the Gooners this season.

Wolves, who have gained a massive reputation for playing as much pure passing football as possible, are today being reported as being ready to move in on the player.

The Hammers have regularly been linked with an interest in the injury prone 26 year old but he would very much suit the philosophy adopted by Wolves boss Nuno Herlander Simões Espírito Santo following the team’s runaway success at the top of the Championship.

And it seems that Nuno could be very ready to add more midfield invention to his via Wilshere and maybe resurrecting Wilshere’s career at the same time whilst scuppering any last chance move by the Irons.

The Gunners and player have failed to agree a new contract after the club made him a vastly reduced offer on his present deal and at his age Wilshere will be looking for far better.

A switch across London would probably suit him  at a personal level but David Moyes appears appears to be looking south west of the capital with Fulham’s Tom Cairney at the top of his wanted list rather than to the north and Wilshere.

  1. One less sicknote to invisige.

  2. I’d rather concentrate on staying up than being linked with loads of players that probably won’t happen anyway.

  3. I’d take him all day long if he didn’t have such a bad medical history. There is no doubting that he is one of England’s best midfielders….. when he’s fit!
    West Ham could offer him a pay per play deal but i don’t think he’d take it. Imho, that would be the only sensible option of bringing Jack to the London stadium.

  4. No thanks …always injured ..highly overrated ..too slow and an ex Gunner .

  5. If things really are going to change at this club one of the most important changes would be to do something about the dreadful injury record. Injuries will happen, but some players get them a lot more than others. Recruiting more players who have poor injury records is hardly the way forward. Mind you,it is all paper talk at the moment and I agree with you badshammer that avoiding relegation is a bit more of a priority.

  6. Tom Cairney is unproven at PL level but he is the sort of player we should be looking at, why not him and Wilshere.

  7. What’s it coming to, when a newly promoted club is being portrayed as a more desirable destination for enhancement than West Ham. Seriously, as grand as WWFC are historically,
    the majority of the PL era has been played without them. Surely if we are interested in signing players of Wilshere’s elk, we’ve got to be seen as a better, more established PL club, or am I guilty of wearing rose tinted glasses? Obviously, whether we should be looking to sign players with recurring fitness issues is another debate entirely.
