Paul Merson: 'AC Milan a good choice for Jack Wilshere'

Former Bournemouth loanee Wilshere has been nearly exclusively limited to Carabao Cup and Europa League duty by Arsene Wenger so far this season, making just two brief top-flight substitute cameos against Everton and Manchester City. Maybe that is because Wilshere has been at the club since before he was a teenager and that he is actually an Arsenal fan as well, but also because of the awesome ability that we know he has and all the bad luck that has dogged his playing career so far.

He was not called up to the most recent squad for this week's match with Germany despite a couple of dropouts and now, manager Gareth Southgate has explained why.

Southgate's biggest problem as he prepares for next summer's World Cup is the centre of his midfield and Hodgson would do him a major favour by taking Wilshere to Selhurst Park and playing him regularly.

Wenger has played Wilshere as a No 10 this season. When we have played with a 10, we have had Dele Alli and Adam Lallana.

Wilshere: "I want to be playing for my country".

"I don't think Jack is a 10". Southgate holds him in high esteem but his slide down the Arsenal pecking order and the difference of opinion over his deployment means he may need a new club, a new position or both in January.

Wilshere has, in fact, only managed to start five games this season, none of which have come in the Premier League.

West Ham United, Swansea City and La Liga outfit Real Betis are all said to be monitoring the player's situation, while The Telegraph recently claimed that struggling Palace were prepared to offer him a lifeline.

"I'd like [Wilshere] to play even more, to be in the starting XI more often and get back into that England team", Adams told the London Evening Standard at this week's premiere for the documentary film "89", which tells the dramatic story of that year's title win. I have just come back to full fitness. I am trying to get into the Premier League team.
