Aston Villa have already brought in Premier League talent this summer in the form of Chelsea legend John Terry.
Now, there is talk of another big name arriving at Villa Park, but not everyone is convinced.
The Mirror claims that Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere is on Steve Bruce’s radar.
The England international has been linked with a move away from the Emirates as he has just one year remaining on his current contract.
The 25-year-old spent last season on loan at Bournemouth, making 27 Premier League appearances, but he ended the campaign with a fractured leg.
Wilshere stepped up his recovery by playing for Arsenal’s Under-23s on Monday night, but it is uncertain whether he will get much game time under manager Arsene Wenger this season.
The midfielder has struggled with injuries for the better part of his senior career, with last season’s appearances being the most that he has made in the league since the 2010-11 campaign.
Upon hearing the news that the Midlands club have made enquiries about Wilshere’s availability, Villa fans took to Twitter.
Some supporters are taking the speculation with a pinch of salt, while others are unsure if the high-profile figure is even needed.

Wilshere? Lolz. Whelan, Jedi, Lansbury, Odomah, Hourihane… do we need 6 CMs? #AVFC

Allegedly, Bruce has made a move for Jack Wilshere, presumably a loan move, I doubt there is any truth in it though… #AVFC

Big fan of Wilshere I must admit, no chance will he sign for us, surely? #avfc

Jack Wilshere to Villa? He’d definitely solve the playmaker role we've been lacking for about 5 years.

Wilshere doesn't excite me because if he ain't fit the talent is meaningless. He's also mentally weak. Got too much of that already
