Jack Wilshere urged to rethink West Ham move while Euro giants maintain hopes of signing England international

Jack Wilshere has been urged to rethink his potential move to West Ham United by former England international Dean Aston.

The news will come as a boost to Fenerbahce who has also been closely linked with the midfield playmaker.

According to Sky Sports, Wilshere is nearing a move to West Ham United after he parted company with Arsenal last week. Per the source, the 26-year-old is keen to remain in the Premier League rather than a move abroad.

However, former West Ham striker Dean Aston believes Wilshere could be making a mistake by joining the Hammers.

Aston doesn’t believe West Ham is the right fit for Wilshere who has struggled with injuries in recent years.

“He is such a quality player and I think when he’s fit he always shows the quality that he’s got,” Aston told talkSPORT.

“But having been there and known what it’s like to try and get through big injuries, long-term absences, especially West Ham.

“I just don’t think it fits the club and Jack Wilshere.

“I think straight away he’s going to be under pressure to play a lot of football because West Ham fans have been used to me retiring, Andy Carroll being injured, suddenly Lanzini’s injured.

“He’s going to be under pressure to play a lot of games and to do the business.

“Also I just think for Jack himself he needs to adapt the way he plays and I just don’t think he can do that.”

However, according to the Turkish outlet Fotomac, Fenerbahce have not given up their pursuit of Jack Wilshere.

Per the source, Fenerbahce has offered a £6.7 million-per-season deal in a last-ditch attempt to prize the midfielder away from joining the Hammers.
