West Ham are eyeing significant improvements in the summer transfer market and new boss Manuel Pellegrini is casting his eye towards a number of recruits.
Recent speculation has put the name of Jack Wilshere back on everybody’s lips, as it’s been claimed that Pellegrini is keen to landing the Arsenal academy graduate.
The England international missed out on a spot for the World Cup in Russia and his future remains under plenty of scrutiny, as he’s entered the final few weeks of his deal at the Emirates Stadium.
While it’s understood Arsenal want to retain the services of the midfielder, the fact that Wilshere has not yet put pen to paper could be decisive – and Pellegrini is eyeing the situation closely.
That’s got West Ham fans talking, as the supporters on social media weigh up whether to make a move for a player that is clearly talented but who has struggled severely with a wealth of injury problems in recent years.
He'd be injured before he made it to the pitch, Andy Carroll Mark 2 but less useful

I would, same as above though it has to be performance based.
It’s the future of deals for injury prone players, make the players want to play for you! #COYI

If thechoice was a fully fit Wiltshire vs a fully fit Noble for central midfield, which one would you take? For me, as much as I love and respect all that Noble has done for our club, I would take Jack for his creativity.

Only on a pay as you play basis.

Yes if the contract is structured correctly. Lower base salary with bonuses for appearances, goals, assists. Don’t want another Carroll situation.
Not for me. 160 appearances in 8 seasons, and with ever diminishing returns. A talented guy in decline, sadly.
