West Ham manager David Moyes has not ruled out signing either Jack Wilshere or Olivier Giroud in the January transfer window.
The Gunners stars are not first team regulars under Arsene Wenger this season, and both players were previously linked with moves to the Hammers over the summer.
Speaking at yesterday’s pre-match press conference before tonight’s game against Arsenal, Moyes was quoted by Sky Sports as saying he would consider bids for the pair if they were available:
“Jack Wilshere would be someone who we’d have to look at if he was available.I also want to make sure we’re looking at players who can be at the club for a long period and not just in for a short period.”
“We’ve got a lot of strikers so I think for us to be linked to strikers at the moment might not necessarily be the right thing. But who knows? I think Olivier Giroud is a talented footballer and has a record of scoring goals.”
Wilshere is edging very close to the last six months of his contract at the Emirates stadium with no sign of a new deal being agreed between the player and the club. A number of teams are reportedly circling in view to making a January bid for the 25 year old, while others are said to be keen on signing the player on a pre-contract agreement for next season.
Giroud meanwhile hinted during an interview with L’Equipe over the weekend, that he may consider leaving the Gunners in order to ensure he makes France’s squad for the World Cup.
