Arsenal and England playmaker Jack Wilshere is reportedly a target for West Ham United.

  • Wilshere could be one of several players to leave club this summer
  • Injuries and poor form have curtailed his Arsenal career

Wilshere, who spent the season on loan at Bournemouth, has been deemed surplus to requirement at Arsenal and could be one of many players to be sold, according to Tribal Football. West Ham United are believed to be interested in the 24-year-old.

While a step down from Arsenal, a move to West Ham could appeal to Wilshere, whose family are believed to be West Ham supporters – the Arsenal midfielder had a West Ham shirt as a child. Moving from North to East London wouldn’t be the biggest geographical adjustment either.

West Ham have some concerns about the player’s ability to remain fit, however, with Wilshere’s career being plagued by countless ankle and foot injuries.

The season-long loan move to Bournemouth was intended to help the player achieve full fitness again, but a broken tibula cut his campaign short in April.

With only 12 months remaining on his current deal, Arsenal may consider cashing in on the player, rather than lose him for free the following summer.
