Jack Wilshere was thrown straight into Manuel Pellegrini’s first XI when he signed for West Ham United in the summer.
The midfielder decided not to renew his contract at Arsenal as he wanted regular game time.
The England international was handed that to him by the Hammers, but in his four Premier League starts he failed to inspire.
In fact, the club lost all of the matches that Wilshere started in, and matters were made worse for the midfielder when he added another injury blow to his long list of fitness troubles.
Since being on the sidelines, Declan Rice, Mark Noble and Pedro Obiang have been manning the middle of the park and they have picked up some decent results.
The club recorded league wins over Everton and Manchester United, as well as a draw with Chelsea.
Before the international break West Ham were dealt a setback when they were beaten by Brighton away.
If any of the midfield three pick up an injury, Pellegrini does not have many options at his disposal.
This led us to ask you if the club should revive their alleged pursuit of Porto midfielder Hector Herrera, who according to CM Journal has turned down three new contract offers.
Judging from the outcome, the Mexico international would be warmly welcomed at the London Stadium if he were to sign.
