Having declared his intention to leave the Emirates Stadium this summer, England international Jack Wilshere is getting influx of suitors, who are keen on adding the experienced midfielder to their team ahead of the upcoming season.
West Ham United are one of the clubs interested in is service and they are said to be in closing stage discussion with the player over contractual issues.
The Hammers struggled at the middle of the pitch throughout last season and their newly appointed manager Manuel Pellegrini is hoping to capture the central midfielder as his short-term solution.
However, West Ham’s proposed deal with the player could crash due to some contractual issues.
Considering the player’s nature as an injury-prone player, the Hammers are ready to offer the 26-year-old a year contract and that hasn’t gone well with Wilshere, who wants a long-term relationship with the club.
With West Ham’s decision to maintain their stand over the player’s contract length, Wilshere might be forced to turn his attention to other suitors before the end of the summer transfer window.
Crystal Palace, Juventus and Everton are the other suitors aiming to capture his signature ahead next season.
Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson is willing to lure the versatile and left-footed midfielder to the Selhurst Park Stadium so as to bolster his play from the centre half in the 2018-19 season.
