Wilshere has come leaps and bounds in the Arsenal youth foundation and was built up as extraordinary compared to other young English players of all time not too long ago. But niggling injuries hampered the Englishman’s progress and he could make 20 Premier League appearances last season.
However, he has 34 international caps with the Three Lions, although he was not called up for the World Cup in Russia and has shown up for Arsenal in over 100 Premier League appearance
“It feels good, it feels special,” said Wilshere. “Many people know that I’ve had a special bond with this club growing up.”
Wilshere supported West Ham as a boy, according to the club, and his father and brother are still ‘Hammers’ fans.
“People will have seen the picture of me in a West Ham shirt and I’ve got good memories of my childhood supporting West Ham, watching them at Upton Park. It feels good and of course my family and a few of my friends are West Ham fans so everyone’s buzzing,” he concluded.
