Jack Wilshere has emerged as a potential target for Everton boss Sam Allardyce this summer.
Ex-England boss Big Sam has revealed he has always been a fan of Arsenal star Wilshere and waxed lyrical about his current condition.
Wilshere has been in superb form this season and finally returned to the England squad only to be ruled out of the Holland win with an injury.
When asked if he was a fan of Wilshere, Toffees boss Allardyce claimed: “I’ve always admired him, oh yes.”
“I’ve seen a big difference in Jack Wilshere recently, in his frame, in his body.
“He looks like he has really got the bit between his teeth.
“He looks a lot fitter than he was and he is leaner in his face.
“He looks like he’s had a real go off the field, with his diet and extra training, to overcome his injury problems and prove what a great player he is.
“Hopefully if he is over his problems, whether it’s Arsenal or another club, we all hope he has a long career ahead of him.”
Wilshere too is happy with where he is at currently after a turbulent few seasons, earlier this week revealing his joy at making it back into the Three Lions setup.
The Gunners ace claimed: “I feel I’m at a place in my career and in my life where I have accepted the past has happened.
“Now I’m just focused on the future and improving myself. I know my body better than I have ever done.
“I know what to do with it and how to get the best out of it so I’m just focused on that.
“I’ve always said I love representing my country, it’s something that I’ve missed.
“But I never gave up. I never gave hope that I could do it again.”
