'Not good enough': Wolves fans discuss prospect of signing Jack Wilshere

Wolves fans celebrate during the Sky Bet Championship match between Derby County and Wolverhampton at iPro Stadium on August 12, 2017 in Derby, England.

Jack Wilshere will leave Premier League giants Arsenal when his contract expires, but could he sign for Championship leaders Wolverhampton Wanderers?

If you ever wanted an indication of how far Wolves have come in such a short space of time, consider this – some fans do  not believe Jack Wilshere is good enough for the Championship leaders.

It is well documented that Wilshere is set to bring his lifelong association with Arsenal to an end when his contract expires at the end of this season and so far there has been no movement on an extension.

According to Football London, Everton are growing increasingly confident that they will sign the 26-year-old on a free transfer, but Wolves have emerged in the betting markets as a surprise contender to sign the 34-time England international.

Ladbrokes have even given odds of 6/1 that Wilshere will be wearing amber next season with Wolves’ place in the Premier League for 2018/19 now assured.

But surely a number supporters are letting their recent success get to their heads somewhat if they believe that Wilshere is not good enough to play at Molineux? He may have struggled with injuries over the years but, when fit, Wilshere is one of England’s most naturally gifted midfielders.

It must be pointed out that the long-serving number ten has featured in 19 Premier League games this season and has been one of Arsenal’s best performers when he is in the starting XI.
