Reports that Jack Wilshere could be moving to West Ham have appeared out of thin air and seem to be made of about as much.

Hammers’ boss, Slaven Bilic, is looking to strengthen his midfield and, according to the Mirror, this means he’s looking at Wilshere, despite no actual sources (not even made-up ones) pointing in this direction.

This won’t happen for a few reasons, the first one being common sense.

Secondly, Wilshere is currently injured, as is the norm, and I don’t see Bilic investing the £20m reported in a player who’s likely to spend more time on the sideline than on the pitch. This is no disrespect to Jack but if he’s going to get over his injury woes, he’ll be far better off surrounded by physios who know his body (oo-er) in the best facilities around.

Thirdly, although the midfielder was technically a West Ham fan, like his family, when he was a child (a fact Spurs fans seem to keep tucked away in their back pockets if they’re ever in need of #TopBanter) he was developed in the Arsenal academy. He’s one of the best examples of an ‘organic’ Gunner we have. I don’t see him wanting to leave without a fight.

Lastly, why would Wenger stick by an injury prone 24-year-old for so many years if he was just going to sell him to another Premier League team as soon as he’s fit. It makes no sense.
