Voters reckon West Ham would be best destination for Wilshere

| 30.08.2016

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is reportedly open to the idea of Jack Wilshere plying his trade away from this Emirates for a season, and our Twitter followers think the best place for the English midfielder to go is West Ham.

It was Slaven Bilic’s side who came out on top with 39 per cent of today’s vote when we asked where would be best for Jack Wilshere to go this season, with 24 per cent of votes going to Valencia, 15 per cent going to Crystal Palace and 22 per cent going to the ‘Other’ category, where followers could comment with their think the England international would be best suited.

There’s a growing concern around North London that Wilshere will fail to live up to his potential, having once been fancied by many to wear the captain’s armband for club and country.

And an injury hit season last time out, combined with the arrivals of Granit Xhaka and Mohamed Elneny this year have meant that Wilshere’s place in the first team is no longer guaranteed. Instead he’s one of seven top players fighting for a starting spot in the centre of the pitch for the Gunners.

This has led to several clubs around Europe expressing their interest in the 24-year-old, although it’s unlikely Wenger will allow a player of Wilshere’s calibre to switch to a title rival, meaning both Crystal Palace and West Ham would have a strong chance of securing his services for a season.

Though several of our followers were of the opinion that a move abroad would be best for Wilshere, the majority seemed to think he would be more suited to another London club.

It’s currently 10/1 for Wilshere to join up with England newboy Michail Antonio and co. at the London Stadium, while 7/4 says he teams up with Alan Pardew at Palace.

But in an ever-changing market which has already seen three different favourites for Wilshere’s signature since this morning – this is certainly one worth keeping your eye on.
