Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere wants to emulate the likes of Tony Adams and write himself into the Gunners history books forever, according to the The Metro.

Wilshere has just returned from over a year out with a serious leg injury and is already pulling the strings in the Arsenal midfield, but the England international knows he has a long way to go to match some other Gunners legends.

“To have my family 20 minutes from the training ground and an hour from the stadium is perfect for me. Cesc wanted to go home. Home for me is Arsenal.

“Cesc wanted to go back to his family and friends. My family and friends are 20 minutes away. It’s perfect.

“I’ve played 39 games in the Premier League, which is nothing when you look at players like Tony Adams and how many appearances they made. That’s something I want to do.

“Our ambition every year is to challenge for the Premier League title. If we didn’t think we could do that, we would be under-achieving.”
