Arsenal legend urges Jack Wilshere to make West Ham United move

Arsenal legend-turned-pundit Ray Parlour has urged midfielder Jack Wilshere to make a switch to West Ham United during this summer’s transfer window.

The England international has recently recovered from his leg fracture sustained during his loan spell with Bournemouth last term.

Wilshere, now 25, faces a tough task of retaining a spot in the Gunners’ first-team, and he has been allowed to feature for the Under 23s side in order to prove his fitness. With less than a year left on his contract, the midfielder has not found any suitors willing to match his £20m valuation, and this could see him stuck in the Gunners’ squad for the summer at least.

Parlour, who was part of the Gunners’ Premier League-winning invincible squad in the 2003/04, believes the Hammers would be the perfect fit for a player of Wilshere’s calibre, he told TalkSPORT: West Ham would be a great fit for him. He’s got young children and you know if you go abroad he won’t be seeing them kids on a regular basis. He wants to be part of their lives growing up so he wants to stay in England if he can.West Ham would be a perfect fit, definitely.” (more…)

Jack Wilshere’s injury has been pushed to February of 2016

Arsenal’s injury curse continues rolling on as many of Arsene Wenger’s key players have been suffering from injury spells including: Danny Welbeck, Santi Cazorla, Mikel Arteta, Tomas Rosicky and Jack Wilshere, are some of the more notable players of Arsenal who have recently suffered injuries.

Jack Wilshere has not managed to play a single minute of the Premier League for Arsenal in this season due to a broken fibula which he sustained back in September of 2015 and this forced the player to undergo a surgery. When the surgery was over, the medical staff of Arsenal stated that Wilshere would be out of action for 3 months but it has now been revealed that the English player will stay even longer away from the pitch.

When Arsene Wenger was asked about the condition of Wilshere, the French manager replied by saying: “If you ask me if he will be fit before the end of December, no chance’’.

Wilshere is now expected to make a return to the pitch in February of 2016 but this date could be extended even further if the Englishman receives other setbacks. (more…)
