Ex-Arsenal midfielder, Wilshere reveals EPL club he cannot join

Free agent midfielder Jack Wilshere has insisted he would never be able to move to Tottenham.

Wilshere came up through Arsenal’s academy and spent 10 years as a part of the first-team set-up with the Gunners, making 197 total appearances.

Though he marked himself as one of England’s most promising talents, Wilshere did not completely fulfill his potential with Arsenal due to a host of injury issues.

He joined West Ham in 2018 but his time with the Hammers was also blighted by injuries, as he managed only 19 appearances over two seasons – including just six Premier League starts.

West Ham ended Wilshere’s £100,000-a-week contract early in October, making the 28-year-old a free agent.

Though Wilshere is still without a club, he told the Super 6 podcast that his Arsenal ties would make any move to their north London rivals impossible.

When asked if he would ever consider a move to Tottenham, Wilshere responded: “I love [head coach Jose] Mourinho, I think he’s an unbelievable coach… But I couldn’t do it.”
