West Ham top Wilshere list

Filed: Thursday, 21st June 2018

West Ham United are second favourites to sign Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshire.

The England international announced last week, following discussions with new Gunners boss Unai Emery, that he would be leaving the club when his current contract expires this weekend.

And that resulted in United - who have been linked with Hammers fan Wilshere for some considerable time - being made one of the favourites to capture the Stevenage-born midfielder, albeit behind Turkish club Fenerbahce.

"Jack Wilshere has finally put the rumours to rest by confirming that he will leave Arsenal this summer after 17 years with the North London club," said BetStars Director of Trading Ian Marmion.

"The news has left a number of clubs scrambling for the services of the free agent. A move to Turkey could be on the cards as Fenerbahce have emerged as the new 11/10 favourites to become the England internationalís next landing spot this summer.

"Meanwhile former favourites West Ham have drifted from 6/4 to 3/1 to get their hands on the Gunners playmaker, while Crystal Palace sit just behind at 7/2 to keep Wilshere in London next season.

"Everton are available at 10/1 to force through a move for the 26-year-old, while Wolves and Bournemouth are both longshots at 12/1 and 16/1 respectively to sign the Arsenal veteran during the summer transfer window."
