Jack Wilshere names the best player he has ever played with

Fabregas Arsenal

Jack Wilshere has revealed the best player he has ever played with as none other than Cesc Fabregas.

Cesc Fabregas has been constantly linked with a return to the Premier League, despite his insistence he is happy at Barcelona.

But if he does change his mind, one man in particular will be heading the queue of millions of fans demanding he return to Arsenal.

And that is Arsenal and England sensation, midfielder Jack Wilshere.

Wilshere was quizzed over the weekend as to who the best ever player he has played with is, telling Spanish newspaper Sport it is none other than Cesc Fabregas.

"He's probably the best player I've ever played - for sure.

"Unfortunately I was injured and I could play together with him only one season, then he went to Barcelona.

"But I learned a lot, placements, control, footwork and the ability to score. He's young and has become a great at Arsenal, what I want to do too."

It's quite an accolade for Fabregas, and even better considering Wilshere has played alongside Premier League veterans Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard for England.

Arsene Wenger said that 'next summer' he would continue to monitor Cesc's situation, who is said to want increased opportunities at Barcelona this coming season.

You can bet if he is up for grabs in 2014, Wilshere will be the first knocking down Wenger's door demanding the club put in a bid.

Is Wilshere's response the one you expected?
