Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has reaffirmed his love for the club and says he wants to become a legend by winning the league with Gunners.
The 25-year-old reaffirmed his desire to stay at Arsenal, despite being linked with a move away from the club in January.
“I feel proud to be an Arsenal player – the 1989 side are legends and hopefully one day I can be an Arsenal legend too,” said Wilshere, as quoted by The Islington Gazette.
“As an Arsenal man I want to win the league and emulate them.
“I want to make history myself at the club. It’s a pleasure to see these heroes.”
Wilshere was speaking at the premiere of 89, a documentary on the Arsenal side who beat Liverpool to the 1989 league title thanks to an injury-time winner from Michael Thomas at Anfield, an iconic moment in the club’s history.
Wilshere attended the premiere alongside a host of Arsenal legends, including George Graham, Tony Adams and Lee Dixon.
Wilshere has won three FA Cups during his time with the club and has been praised for his good form this season, despite limited first-team opportunities.
He has made eight appearances for the Gunners in all competitions this season and made his first Premier League start in the recent 3-1 defeat at Manchester City.
Wilshere spent last season on loan at Bournemouth where he made 27 Premier League appearances.
The midfielder will be hoping to be part of the side who face Tottenham in the Premier League on November 19.
