Arsenal ace Jack Wilshere ‘considering future’ with West Ham and Crystal Palace eyeing him up

Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate warned he must be "playing at a good level" in order to return to the international team

Jack Wilshere is considering quitting Arsenal in a bid to make the England plane for next year’s World Cup, according to reports.

The midfielder, 25, last played for the Three Lions in the humiliating 2-1 loss to Iceland in the knockout stage of Euro 2016.

Boss Gareth Southgate warned Wilshere he has to be “playing at a good level” to return to the fray.

A season on loan at Bournemouth revitalised a career plagued by injuries but Wilshere is yet to feature in the Premier League for Arsenal this term.

The report also claims those close to Wilshere insist he has been fit enough to play since the start of the campaign but has made just three appearances in the Europa League and Carabao Cup.

And so a move to admirers West Ham or Crystal Palace is most likely, reports the Times.

Birmingham made a bid to land him in the summer but Championship football is not an option with his international aspirations at stake.

Wilshere insists he is fitter than ever as he looks to finally put his injury woes behind him.

He said: “My fitness levels if I’m honest are the best they have ever been.

“If you look at the numbers after the game, I’ve been out for four months but I’m not the one who hasn’t ran the most.

“Don’t get me wrong, I don’t run the most, but my numbers are good so I’m happy.”
