Paper Talk: Man City ace’s huge pay hike; Wilshere’s West Ham wish

Date published: Tuesday 19th September 2017 3:39

West Ham will rival Fenerbahce to sign an Arsenal star, while one of Manchester City’s new favourites is already in line for a payrise, according to Tuesday’s newspapers.


Jack Wilshere wants West Ham to save him from his Arsenal misery.

That’s according to an exclusive in the Daily Star, which claims the England midfielder is resigned to leaving Arsenal as a free agent next summer, with the club showing no ambition to hand him a new deal.

Wilshere is also wanted in Turkey and despite reports he has agreed terms over a move to Fenerbahce in January, the paper claims Wilshere is keen to stay in the Premier League and give himself the best possible chance of resurrecting his faltering career.

Wilshere spent last season on loan at Bournemouth, but hopes of a permanent move away were ruined by Arsenal’s £20million asking price.

The player made a return to action for the Gunners on Thursday, coming on and impressing as a 68th-minute substitute against Cologne.

But Wilshere was axed from the squad for Sunday’s draw at Chelsea, proving to the player that his days at Arsenal are numbered.

It’s believed the player is willing to take a significant wage cut and hopes to join West Ham in a bid to prove he can still cut it at this level.
