Now that Jack Wilshere has confirmed that he will be leaving Arsenal next month, plenty of clubs are expected to be linked to the midfielder.
Southampton are one of the potential suitors being named in the media.
On Tuesday, The Mirror reported that the coastal club are interested in bringing the England international on board.
Manager Mark Hughes is believed to be an admirer of the 26-year-old, who has struggled with serious injury problems over the years.
Despite the majority of last season being injury-free for Wilshere, he was still unable to hold down a regular spot on the team.
On Tuesday evening, the midfielder announced via Instagram that he will leave Arsenal when his contract expires next month.
Wilshere admitted that he wanted to stay, but was informed by manager Unai Emery that he would not be given much game time this season.
Southampton now find themselves in a situation where they could potentially sign the midfielder for nothing, and while some fans think the move is a no-brainer, others are not so convinced.
Wilshere would probably injure himself on the way to his medical!!!#saintsfc

Should we go for Wilshere?
Personally think we don’t really need him given that our midfield options are pretty large but would definitely welcome him! #SaintsFC

He would be a great addition to our squad! Play him infront of Romeu and Pierre and let him roam free!

I would seriously doubt it wouldn’t you? I’m not sure who would take him. Great player but expensive and you just can’t plan around him.

I’d have Jack Wilshere at #saintsfc, on a appearance based wage.

If we go for Wilshere, I’d put him on a pay as you play contract. Don’t see any point paying him 90 grand a week or whatever he’s on for him to be keeping the medical team busy for 6 months #SaintsFC
