Arsenal aim to finish above Tottenham, says Wilshere

12 November 2017

After 13 players were missing from his last England squad, the former Middlesbrough boss has been hit with a series of withdrawals for the forthcoming games with Germany and Brazil, too.

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.

"We bought [Mesut] Ozil and these players".

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere on Thursday asserted his club is aiming to defeat Tottenham Hotspur in their English Premier League (EPL) tie on Saturday and finish above them in the points table.

Ex-Eagles boss Alan Pardew failed to land Wilshere in a loan swoop at the the beginning of last season.

Wenger has played Wilshere as a No 10 this season. With Hodgson's successor, Gareth Southgate, stating that he can't consider Wilshere because of his lack of game time, such a move would make sense.

"But I want to be clear, I really like Jack Wilshere as a player".

"I don't think Jack is a 10".

"I am hoping that we are in a position in March where we can pick him".

"I've been here 10 years, I love this club and feel like I have a special relationship with the fans", Wilshere told Standard Sport. "I'm a proud Englishman and I want to be playing whenever I can". The midfielder has suffered so many injuries but now is the time for him to really kick on and break into the first-team to prove he is good enough to play for England again. "I've been playing quite a lot of football and I'm happy with where I am fitness wise but I want to be playing for Arsenal in the league".

"At the moment I'm concentrating on getting into the Premier League team".
