What is Wilshere's agent trying to gain on Arsenal with 'lies'?

What is Wilshere's agent trying to gain on Arsenal with 'lies'?

JACK Wilshere insists he wants to stay at Arsenal and is putting his faith in the "great relationship" that he has with Arsene Wenger to help him get back into the national fold.

The twenty-five year old is keen to work his way into Gareth Southgate's thoughts ahead of next summer's World Cup finals in Russian Federation with a loan move looking likely once the transfer window reopens.

"You can accelerate people's progress and we saw that with a lot of the players we brought into the England team".

Wilshere spent last season on loan at Bournemouth where he made 27 Premier League appearances.

Wilshere is likely to feature in Arsenal's two remaining Europa League group games and the Carabao Cup clash with West Ham in December.

Wenger has played Wilshere as a No 10 this season.

England boss Gareth Southgate has also warned the midfielder that he will not earn an global recall unless he is playing regularly, meaning a likely Emirates Stadium exit in the eyes of Merson.

"I want to be clear: I really like Jack Wilshere as a player".

"I want to be playing for my country", he said.

"I have got no idea about where the name of Jack Wilshere has come from, so where did you get it from?"

Wilshere has been overlooked for a heavily depleted squad due to a lack of game time at Arsenal and Southgate's view that he has not been used in his best position in recent seasons.

"Now you are telling me we have been linked with him, but by who?"

"I'd like [Wilshere] to play even more, to be in the starting XI more often and get back into that England team", Adams told the London Evening Standard at this week's premiere for the documentary film "89", which tells the dramatic story of that year's title win.

As a result, he had recently said: "He said I need more football".
