West Ham must sign PL midfield maestro in Jan to avoid relegation, Moyes confirms interest

COMMENT

West Ham United must sign Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere in January, as they battle relegation in the Premier League.

The Hammers boss David Moyes told the Guardian recently that the club would “have to look at” the player if he was to be made available in the New Year – and he is right.

Provided he can stay fit, Wilshere would be an excellent signing for the Hammers, given his years of Premier League experience. He would be a welcome addition to their midfield and could slot straight into Moyes’ starting line-up.

Though he has struggled with injuries during his time at Arsenal, he has achieved great success and has proven that he has still got what it takes to be successful player at the level.

However, he has fallen down the pecking order at Emirates Stadium and has been limited to EFL Cup and Europa League action for this season, with the occasional substitute appearance in the Premier League.

Though he is an Arsenal man, the 25-year old should seriously considering leaving the Emirates Stadium in January, if he wants to save his chances of making Gareth Southgate’s 23-man squad for the 2018 World Cup in Russia next summer.

He spent last season on loan at Bournemouth and could be prepared to leave the Emirates again. A move to the London Stadium would also be perfect for him as it allows him to remain in the capital.

Wilshere started against the Hammers on Wednesday night, due to an injury to midfielder Aaron Ramsey and the perfect opportunity for him to showcase his quality in front of Moyes.
