AC Milan line up Wilshere bid

Milan hoping to land Wilshere on permanent deal next summer

Italian giants AC Milan will step up their pursuit for Jack Wilshere next summer after the midfielder admitted his future lies away from Arsenal. The England international is currently plying his trade on a season-long loan with Bournemouth.

Wilshere, 24, had been the subject of interest from the likes of AC Milan and AS Roma in the summer, before he opted to join the Cherries where he was guaranteed a regular starting place.

According to The Star, the Rossoneri are keeping a close watch on the player's progress at Dean Court with a view to a potential offer for his services next year.

Wilshere has previously hinted that he sees no way back to the Emirates, and this has captured the attention of the Milan giants, who are ready to spend big under the new Chinese ownership.

The Stevenage-born midfielder has appeared in nine outings for Eddie Howe's side this season.
