Jack Wilshere confirmed that he will be leaving Arsenal this summer, and Fulham should attempt to make the midfielder their marquee summer signing.
The 26-year-old has spent his entire career with the Gunners, but is set to leave the Emirates after being told by Unai Emery that his playing time will be limited this season.
And what a signing he could prove to be for Fulham.
The Cottagers enjoyed a successful Championship campaign last season - one that culminated in their promotion to the Premier League, but Slaviša Jokanović quite simply must improve upon the quality of his squad during the off-season.
One particular area where the Serbian will want to strengthen is his central midfield options, with more creativity and guile required in the middle of the park.
With this in mind, Fulham should not hesitate to bring Wilshere to Craven Cottage, especially considering the fact that he is available on a free transfer.
The 26-year-old has struggled with injuries throughout the course of his career thus far, but on his day, he is arguably one of the best central midfield players in the Premier League.
He proved that he is back to his best from a fitness perspective last season, making 38 appearances in all competitions for Arsenal.
His impeccable technique, and ability to unlock the opposition's defence would be a great asset for the west Londoners, and his availability on a free transfer makes a move for him a no brainer for Fulham this summer.
