Transfer Rumour: Crystal Palace eyeing shock move for Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere

Adjust Comment Print

Wilshere's last appearance for England was in the humiliating Euro 2016 defeat to Iceland that cost Hodgson his job.

For the Gunners, he has played one hundred and sixty-five times in all competitions, scoring twelve goals though he has made just two Premier League starts so far this season.

England play Germany at Wembley on 10 November and face another home game against Brazil on 14 November.

With time running out for the 25-year-old to clinch a place in the Southgate's squad, a former England manager is set to hand him a lifeline. Maybe that is because Wilshere has been at the club since before he was a teenager and that he is actually an Arsenal fan as well, but also because of the incredible ability that we know he has and all the bad luck that has dogged his playing career so far.

Gareth Southgate, who also attempted to call up Chelsea's Danny Drinkwater only to be informed that he was not fit enough to feature, has reiterated that Wilshere must be playing regularly in order to force his way back into the worldwide fold, while also claiming that he is being deployed out of position at no.10 at club level. I think he is a talent and I really respect him as an individual. I am happy with where I am, playing-wise. You'd have to ask Arsene [Wenger] why that was.

Southgate's biggest problem as he prepares for next summer's World Cup is the centre of his midfield and Hodgson would do him a major favour by taking Wilshere to Selhurst Park and playing him regularly.

Wilshere has won 34 caps for England since making his senior worldwide debut as an 18-year-old in 2010.

"I work with [sporting director] Dougie Freedman and we talk about potential players and Jack Wilshere's name has never been mentioned".

Wenger said last week that the midfielder was "ready" to play for England again after overcoming his injury troubles.
