Although Wilshere has not featured regularly for Arsene Wenger in the latter stages of last season, the 23-year-old has expressed his desire to stay at the Emirates, if he is wanted.
City are now believed to be plotting a massive £40 million move for the tenacious midfielder, but former Arsenal manager Graham insists the deposed Premier League champions haven’t a chance of landing Wilshere.
When asked about this potential transfer this summer, Graham said:
‘I would think Manchester City and other big clubs would like to take Jack Wilshere, the best is still to come from him.
‘He’s young enough. He’s an outstanding player but he’s still got to improve as well. If he improves on what he has got right now he’s going to be one of the top midfield players.
‘There is no way Arsenal will sell him at the present time.’
Although £40 million is a tempting offer, the majority of the Arsenal faithful would riot if Wilshere departs for City, or for any other club for that matter this summer. Many see him as a future Arsenal captain and believe he will fulfil his much promised potential sooner rather than later.
I can’t see Wilshere leaving Arsenal, not this summer anyway, and City should look elsewhere for home-grown talent.
