Jack Wilshere is like Lionel Messi Kylian Mbappe - Arsene Wenger

Jack Wilshere is like Lionel Messi Kylian Mbappe - Arsene Wenger

West Ham have snapped up Jack Wilshere on a free transfer and a three-year deal, after his Arsenal contract expired.

"I hope that, next week, or before we finish July, the fans of West Ham will have good news", he told the club's official website .

"After speaking with the manager and those at the club I knew my future was at the London Stadium and I can't wait to get going now".

"I've got good memories of my childhood supporting West Ham, watching them at Upton Park". "It feels good and of course my family and a few of my friends are West Ham fans so everyone's buzzing".

Wilshere had been hampered by injuries in recent years and spent the 2016-17 season on loan at Bournemouth.

On top of this, a picture of a young Wilshere wearing a Hammers shirt was leaked in 2013, which makes this move even more well-suited to the 26-year-old's career.

Pellegrini, who has already signed another former Arsenal player Polish goakeeper Lukasz Fabianski and young French defender Issa Diop for a reported £12 million ($16 million, 13.5million euros), is on the brink of bringing in Ukrainian global forward Andriy Yarmolenko, who will cost a club record fee of about 20m euros from German side Borussia Dortmund.

Despite the delay West Ham are confident that Anderson will sign for them with the fee nearly twice their previous record which stands at the £24 million they paid Stoke City last summer for Marko Arnautovic.

Not many clubs could fill it week in, week out, and West Ham do.

Michail Antonio is one of three players West Ham United are prepared to offload if the right offer is made, according to a report.

The midfielder missed out on making the England squad for this summer's World Cup, but he will be looking to hit the ground running at the start of a new chapter.

When Jack Wilshere left Arsenal this summer, nearly in tandem with father-figure Arsene Wenger, speculation about his next destination was rather timid in comparison to the rumours surrounding players of his ilk.
