London rivals want Jack Wilshere

Wilshere to West Ham?

West Ham United are plotting a summer swoop for Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere, who is currently on a season-long loan at Bournemouth.

The England international had found first-team chances hard to come by during the start of the campaign, and this urged him to test himself at Dean Court rather than moving to one of AS Roma or AC Milan.

Wilshere has since emerged a regular fixture under Eddie Howe but has recently started off the substitutes' bench with the manager opting for two striker partnership.

According to The Sun, the England playmaker will be returning to the Emirates this summer as the Cherries are unlikely to cough up large sums to secure his signature.

With Arsene Wenger likely to extend his contract beyond this season, Wilshere's future remains uncertain, and this is something that West Ham will seek to capitalize during the coming transfer window.

Slaven Bilic's side are prepared to pay a club-record £30m fee in order to lure the highly-rated Englishman to the London stadium for the next season and beyond.
