Audacious Celtic swoop for out-of-contract PL international would be signing of the summer
In his time as Celtic manager, Brendan Rodgers has managed to help players get their careers back on track on a few occasions.
The most notable players he has helped to relaunch their career are Scott Sinclair, who seemed to be going nowhere at Aston Villa until Rodgers swooped and turned him into Scotland’s player of the year.
Dedryck Boyata is another player Rodgers has transformed, from a Hoops squad player to someone who is heading to the World Cup with Belgium.
There is another player out there though, who seems to be in limbo, that Rodgers could help get back to his best – Jack Wilshere.
The 26-year-old, who is still in the prime of his career, seems to be at a low ebb at the moment, after missing out on an England World Cup place and his contract running out at Arsenal without a new one being agreed.

West Ham, as reported by the Daily Star, are interested in signing Wilshire but Rodgers should use his powers of persuasion to complete what would be an audacious transfer.
Wilshere can rebuild his career playing in some huge games, such as the Champions League group stages – where he hasn’t played for a few seasons – and the Old Firm derby.
Once he has got his career back on track then Rodgers wouldn’t have any qualms about selling him to a club in the Premier League.
It could perhaps only take a year for Wilshere to get back to his best, and he should be doing that wearing the famous green and white hoops.
