Paul Robinson showered West Ham midfielder Jack Wilshere with praise after it was reported that he wants to stay at the Hammers.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Laura O’Leary, the ex-England goalkeeper backed Wilshere to make a difference at the Hammers if given an opportunity.
It was recently reported that the 28-year-old will resist any attempts to be sold this month with him eyeing a return to the Hammers’ first-team.
Robinson believes Wilshere has the ability to make an impact at the London Stadium and even suggested he’d be like a new signing to David Moyes if he can stay fit.
When asked if Wilshere can make the difference at West Ham as he’s set to resist any attempt to sell him, Robinson told Football Insider: “Course he can, especially with a new manager in there.
“If he is fit then he’s a good addition for any squad.
“I think he wants to get fit, he wants game time, but without a shadow of a doubt, he can make a difference at West Ham.
“Moyes has already made a difference and having a player of that quality come back into his squad, it’ll be like a new signing for him.”
It is believed the former England international will return to training in the next fortnight as his recent injury complaint that relates to his pelvic area isn’t a major concern.
Wilshere has only managed to feature eight times for the Hammers this season, though did manage to rack up a goal in his EFL Cup outing.
