According to the respected @ExWHUemployee on episode 58 of the latest West Ham Way radio show, Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere is keen to join the club in January and a move is likely to happen, and Irons fans are backing the potential deal.
The Times reported on October 11 that the 25-year-old was considering leaving the Emirates Stadium in the New Year in order to play regularly and boost his chances of making the England squad for the 2018 World Cup.
The midfielder’s current Arsenal deal runs out next summer, and with few signs that he will be handed a new one despite the fact that he has featured for the north London outfit in the EFL Cup and the Europa League this term, a transfer to the Hammers would be an attractive option.
West Ham supporters were quick to have their say on the rumour via social media, and while some believe that his creative ability is “exactly what Chicarito needs to get scoring”, others have urged the reported Hammers fans to “come home”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
So many people complaining about the idea of this but Wilshere's creativity is exactly what Chicharito needs to get scoring.
