Should Jack Wilshere leave Arsenal for West Ham?
Wednesday, December 13, 2017
Wilshere, the Arsenal midfielder, has made just 13 appearances this season and has not started a single Premier League fixture since the middle of April.
He was playing for Bournemouth when he suffered the leg injury that forced him to miss the remainder of the 2016-17 season and the opening weeks of this campaign, and he has still not established himself in Arsene Wenger’s first-team since returning to the Emirates.
Speaking ahead of West Ham’s match against the Gunners, Moyes said: “Jack Wilshere would be someone who we’d have to look at if he was available.
“I also want to make sure we’re looking at players who can be at the club for a long period and not just in for a short period.
“Then there’s also the short-term fix for me which is how do we get enough wins between now and the end of the season? There’s a balance between that.
“That’s why those decisions will have to be mutually taken with (head of recruitment) Tony Henry, the chairman and myself to make the right deals.
“I’ve got an idea of where I need to strengthen. We’ve already said there’s a little bit of an imbalance but that can happen at football clubs.
“Could January be the difference between staying up and going down? I do believe it could.
“I think if the right players are available we should try and do something. If we can get the right players, that’s the big part of it.”
Following Moyes’ admission, West Ham fans have taken to social media to react to the news their club could sign Wilshere next month.
