According to reports in The Sun, West Ham United are ready to make a £30m bid for Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere.
The 25-year-old’s contract at the Emirates runs out next summer and even though he has been offered a new one by manager Arsene Wenger, the England international could choose to leave the club in search of regular first team football.
Wilshere has spent the current season on loan at Bournemouth as he looks to get more minutes and starts in the Premier League, and while he has impressed at times he has found himself on the substitutes’ bench in recent weeks under Eddie Howe, too.
Irons supporters were quick to have their say on the link to the midfielder, believing that he would be a perfect fit for the side which has lost four successive top flight matches, and not in a positive way.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction to the rumour…
