Earlier this week, David Moyes suggested Jack Wilshere as a potential mid-season transfer target for West Ham, claiming the Irons would have to ‘look at’ the Arsenal midfielder if he became available in January.
No doubt, the England international is a fine talent and one who would improve arguably the weakest area of West Ham’s starting XI, which has struggled to protect the defence and link it to the attack for much of the season.
“You’d hope that if you took a player from another Premier League club it’d be much easier for him to go right into the team and play well. Jack Wilshere would be someone who we’d have to look at if he was available.”
But Wilshere inevitably comes with risk after so many injury problems and if there’s one thing West Ham don’t need, it’s another creative talent who can’t be fully relied upon.
With that in mind, we asked Hammers fans earlier this week whether they’d back a January swoop for Wilshere and although our poll revealed that the majority would, a rather significant 36% weren’t keen on the idea.
