Jack Wilshere is now more likely than ever for a spot on England's plane to Russia, according to Ladbrokes.

The bookies now make the Arsenal man a 4/5 shot to feature in Gareth Southgate's 23-man squad at this year's World Cup, having been as long as 11/4 back in December.

That drop in odds means the midfielder is now the most likely Arsenal player for an England call-up. This is on the back of a string of impressive performances for the Gunners, which he capped off with a brilliant strike in last night's 2-2 draw with rivals Chelsea last nigh

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: "Wilshere ticks a lot of boxes for the national side and since becoming a regular in Arsenal's Premier League starting XI's again his odds have continued to fall, meaning he now looks more likely than ever to represent his country in Russia this year."
