Jack Wilshere has Premier League options

A string of Premier League clubs have spoken to Arsenal about taking Jack Wilshere in January, both permanently and on loan – but he is confident he can become a key figure for The Gunners again.

Wilshere started his first game for Arsenal in 18-months as he featured in the club’s goalless draw at West Ham.

The 25-year-old midfielder is out-of-contract at the end of the season, but as yet a new deal has not been agreed.

Arsene Wenger is keen to extend his stay, and Wilshere is keen to stay – but it remains to be seen if the two sides can come to any agreement – not just over a deal but also his role within the squad.

And the player admits nothing is close to being agreed and said: “There’s no update, we’re in the same position we were in two weeks ago.

“There’s not really a date in the diary. I’ve only read what he (Wenger) has said in the media.”

West Ham have been one of the first to confirm an interest with boss David Moyes admitting: “Jack Wilshere would be someone who we’d have to look at if he was available.

“I also want to make sure we’re looking at players who can be at the club for a long period and not just in for a short period.”

West Ham aside, sources close to the situation have told me up to half-a-dozen Premier League clubs have confirmed an interest in landing Wilshere. Everton, Newcastle and Watford are amongst those keeping a close eye on the situation.

However, Wilshere is confident that he can play his way back into the first-team at Arsenal which would more than likely see him recalled to the England squad.

Indeed the Bookmakers are of the belief that Wilshere will be staying put in the New Year.

Lee Price of PaddyPower commented: “So Jack Wilshere wants to join another club. That might, to some, suggest a January move – but that’s forgetting a key detail: another club has to want him.

“We don’t buy that anyone would buy him – especially as he will be a free agent in the summer – so expect him to stay at The Emirates and get an odd run out in the Europa League.”
