Three Reasons Why David Moyes Must Go All Out To Bring Jack Wilshere To West Ham United
West Ham United are reportedly interested in a move for Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere. The player’s career has been stunted due to a number of injuries over the last couple of seasons but he seems to have recovered now and is back to match fitness. However, a lot of water has flown under the bridge and he is seemingly finding it difficult to re-establish a spot for himself under Arsene Wenger. He continues to be a favourite among the fans but there seems to be no spot in the midfield for him at present.
In such a situation, interest from West Ham does come across as a good opportunity for the 25-year-old. Granted, they are teetering on the brink of relegation danger and are not in a strong place but a proven quality player like Wilshere can remarkably bring about a change in their fortunes.
The Hammers have been performing quite decently of late and have shown encouraging signs under David Moyes’ watchful eyes but this is not enough. They have an uphill task ahead of them and the road will only get tougher. Hence, here are 3 reasons why Moyes must not hesitate to sign Wilshere.
Wilshere played for Arsenal as a prolific youngster at a time when the Gunners were not struggling as much as they are right now. And even though Arsenal had quite a number of influential players in their ranks back then, the midfielder managed to rise above them all and cement a spot for himself. So he has ample experience of fighting for a spot and delivering performances to seal a victory for his side. Moreover, nobody can forget how he stood shoulder-to-shoulder against Xavi and Andres Iniesta in that fateful match against Barcelona.
Attack Support For Javier Hernandez
Chicharito has struggled for the Hammers so far due to the lack of support he receives from the midfielders. Wilshere at his best is known to create chances even in the most unlikely places and it is this creativity of his that earned him so many accolades when he first burst on to the scene. His passing quality remains unparalleled and he could truly impact the side’s attack by feeding Hernandez.
Regular Playing Minutes
After such a long hiatus from footballing action, Wilshere will be itching to get back. Plus, he needs all the game time he can get from now in order to convince Gareth Southgate to grant him a spot in England’s squad for the upcoming FIFA World Cup. He clearly cannot do that at Arsenal but given the dearth of attacking options for Moyes at West Ham, Wilshere would benefit big time.
