Rangers were heavily linked with Jack Wilshere last year and, after his release from Bournemouth recently, Ross Wilson should seek to bring him to Ibrox to link up with Steven Gerrard’s side ahead of next season.
The Gers were one of several clubs to be linked with the former Arsenal man last year following his release from West Ham but it was Championship side Bournemouth who won the race to sign him in January on a deal until the end of the season.
The 29-year-old was a regular in Jonathan Woodgate’s side until the end of the campaign, making 15 appearances in the Championship, in which he managed one goal and one assist.
Despite this return, the Cherries would not offer the former England international a new deal and released him recently, meaning that he is once again available on a free transfer.
Wilshere was once regarded as one of the most exciting young midfielders in England before injuries unfortunately derailed his career but, after an injury-free spell on the south coast, he could well be worth the risk for Rangers this summer.
If he was signed on a pay-as-you-play basis, there would be nearly no risk in signing him, and should he stay fit, he could prove to be a superb addition to Gerrard’s squad.
Back in 2018, Gennaro Gattuso spoke very highly of Wilshere due to AC Milan’s interest in signing him, saying: “I think he can play in any league. He may not be super-fast, but he has got great skills and is super-tactical. He has good ball circulation—when he gets the ball he knows exactly where to send it. He knows exactly the right pace and can change the pace of the game. He can play central midfield or a little bit further up.”
If there is one man who can help Wilshere rediscover his best form, it could be Gerrard; and if the Liverpool legend can whip his former England teammate into shape, then he would surely be worth whatever money Rangers need to pay him in order to bring him to Ibrox this summer, so Wilson should definitely consider signing him.
