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.
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.

Neves going NO WHERE— TrevD1877 (@TrevD20) April 14, 2018
As for Jack, not a good fit plus he will be injured for 80% of the season
Why would we want Wilshere? Our lads are made out of steel and can do everything he can without paying for extra medical insurance. Wolves central midfield will be Neves and Carvalho.— WOLVESTRUTH (@WolvesTruth) April 14, 2018
We've got an international midfield playmaker, why do we need Crock Wilshire to sit on the bench? No thanks.— David Butler (@chauffeur_dave) April 13, 2018
No thanks, we are aiming higher than that.— Wolfman. ⚽⚽⚽⚽ (@pertonwolf) April 13, 2018
No thanks. Not good enough for Wolves.— Colin Peppiatt (@ColinPep1) April 13, 2018
Wilshere is a class act, if he stayed fit he’d be a massive asset— Ron (@roneilcallo) April 14, 2018
No doubting his ability or quality but would question his fitness, otherwise it's a no brainier— paul nicholls (@StPaul197173) April 14, 2018
