Paul Merson tells Jack Wilshere to leave Gunners and join AC Milan

Jack Wilshere wanted at Crystal Palace by Roy Hodgson

Omitted from the squad for tonight's England game against Germany, the playmaker "is desperate to play for Arsenal".

Hodgson took Wilshere to the European Championship even though not fully fit and virtually guaranteed him a place in his midfield when he was not injured.

Roy Hodgson has insisted that the player's agent has told reporters about supposed interest from his club about a possible move to Crystal Palace for Wilshere, but the former England coach has denied any truth in the rumours.

England manager Gareth Southgate has identified what Jack Wilshere has to do at Arsenal in order to get back into the England team (via The Metro).

But new West Ham manager David Moyes has been promised funds for January and the club are expected to sign a new midfielder after missing out on William Carvalho last summer.


Hodgson worked with Wilshere whilst he was in charge of England, prompting newspapers to suggest he is keen to link-up with the 25-year-old again. "That is not the way we are playing".

Wilshere spent last season on loan at Bournemouth where he made 27 Premier League appearances. When we have played with a 10, we have had Dele Alli and Adam Lallana.

"I feel proud to be an Arsenal player - the 1989 side are legends and hopefully one day I can be an Arsenal legend too", said Wilshere, as quoted by The Islington Gazette. You'd have to ask Arsene [Wenger] why that was.

"I don't think Jack is a 10". I work with Dougie Freedman and we talk about potential players, and Jack Wilshere's name has never been mentioned in this room.

"I am hoping that we are in a position in March where we can pick him". He said I needed more football so that's what I've got to do.
