Jack Wilshere Linked With January Move To Premier League Side

Jack Wilshere has been regularly linked with a move away from Arsenal, and today there's talk of Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson trying to bring him to the opposite side of London in January.

The struggling Eagles are still right at the foot of the Premier League table, even if things have picked up a little bit since Hodgson's arrival.

And Matt Law from The Telegraph says that the experienced boss is keen on drafting Wilshere in to boost their survival bid. The two worked together in the England set-up and Hodgson included him in his Euro 2016 side - his last ever international appearance being the shock defeat inflicted by Iceland in the round of 16.

But as it stands, Wilshere's chances of going to the 2018 World Cup in Russia are looking slim, especially after Jake Livermore and Jack Cork were called up as replacements ahead of him.

Gareth Southgate has made it clear that he needs to be playing regular football to have any chance of getting back in. The 25-year old has seen plenty of game-time in the Europa League and Carabao Cup but has only played a total of 22 minutes in the Premier League.

Commenting on his absence from the national team set-up to Sky Sport News, via The Mirror, Wilshere said:

"I want to be playing for my country. I am a proud Englishman. But it is down to the manager [Southgate]. He didn't select me. He said I need more football. That is what I have got to do.

"I have got to take it on board, try to get into the Arsenal first team and hopefully I'll be selected. I have just come back to full fitness. I am happy with where I am, playing-wise. I am trying to get into the Premier League team.

"At the moment I am concentrating on the now. The future will take care of itself. All I have got to do is stay fit and play my football. I want to stay at this club - I have said that many times."

Wilshere's current deal at Arsenal expires in the summer, with West Ham, Swansea City and Real Betis all monitoring his situation.
