Exclusive claims NUFC will battle West Ham and Swansea to sign Arsenal midfielder

News arriving this afternoon from The Telegraph who claim Newcastle are considering a loan move for Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere and could face competition from Premier League rivals West Ham and Swansea for his signature.

The 25-year old midfielder spent last season on loan at Bournemouth, making 35 appearances in all competitions – a vast improvement on previous seasons given his torrid injury record.

That injury record would be my biggest concern if we were to pursue a deal for Wilshere, however if we could keep him fit, he could be a more than useful signing, with the England international having undoubted talent.

It was reported earlier this week that Arsenal would listen to £9m offers for the central midfielder, however today’s news suggests a loan deal could be in the offing:

Whilst his fitness problems are a concern, Wilshere could be a smart acquisition on loan and could help fill the creative void left when Jonjo Shelvey is out of the team.

I imagine a move to West Ham could be his preferred choice, given he currently resides in London. Given his injury record, I would not lose any sleep if we did miss out on this one, but he’s certainly a player who could offer something different to our midfield.

  1. NO. Wilshere didn’t do particularly well at Bournmouth. They didn’t attempt to sign him themselves did they ? His injury record reminds me of Michael Owen. He WAS good. He’s run of the mill now and NOT worth £20 mill PLUS. Arsenal know this thats why they’re trying to get shot of him
