SkyBet have placed West Ham United as the 1/7 favourites to sign Jack Wilshere.
The Englishman is available on a free transfer this summer following his release from Arsenal, and a number of clubs have been linked with a move.
Fenerbahce and Everton were both believed to be in a strong position, but West Ham are now the huge favourites to complete a deal in the coming days.
The West Ham fans have been debating the news on social media, and it would be fair to say that they are struggling to come to an agreement over the potential deal.
There is no question that Wilshere was a wonderful prospect during his early days at Arsenal, but injuries have harmed the 26-year-old in recent seasons.

That said, it is a bit of a no-brainer to take him on a free transfer if the wages are not too high.
The West Ham supporters have been engaging in a debate on social media, and a selection of the best Twitter reaction relating to the tumbling odds can be seen below:
Wiltshire is a good player if he’s fit ! Can we take a gamble on him ?
Imo he’d be good at West Ham
