Jack Wilshere is desperate to join West Ham United this summer despite interest from clubs abroad.
The 25 year old is up for sale as Wenger looks to get him off the club’s books.
Wilshere has struggled with injuries since 2014 and with his contract expiring next summer, Arsenal aren’t looking to offer him a new deal but instead will listen to offers for his services.
And the midfielder wants to remain in London, with his preference to join West Ham.
A source close to West Ham @ExWHUemployee made this claim on twitter, saying Wilshere who has a good relationship with people at the club is keen on a move to his boyhood club.
“Jack Wilshere is desperate to join us. I spoke about this transfer a number of weeks ago. He really, really, really wants to join West Ham. He knows a number of players here, he knows a number of the coaches,” he said on The West Ham Way podcast, as quoted by the Daily Cannon.
“He’s more keen on us than we are on him at the moment – as harsh as that sounds. There could be some movement on him before the end of the window. David Sullivan didn’t deny it on radio and this is something I wouldn’t be surprised to see as he’s a big West Ham fan.”
The troubled playmaker spent part of his youth career at the Hammers and now wants to return there.
West Ham could make a move for him but signing a midfielder doesn’t appear to be their priority at the moment, so he may have to wait for his dream move a little longer.
