Star Denies Transfer Rumours, Declaring “I Want To Win Trophies At Arsenal”
Jack Wilshere has committed himself to Arsenal and insists he has no intentions of leaving North London.
The gifted midfielder has been touted as the next Arsenal captain and admits he isn’t motivated by money. The Gunners have endured a difficult summer transfer window, with former captain Cesc Fabregas, winger Samir Nasri and defender Gael Clichy leaving for pastures new.
Wilshere has been subject to speculation in recent months with reports linking Man City with a move, but insists he is at the perfect club. He told the Evening Standard:
“No disrespect to Manchester City but Arsenal is the perfect home for me right now.
“Some players have got their price but, to be honest, that’s not the way I look at the game.
“All I think about is playing at the highest level and in the top competitions so I can measure myself against the best in the world.
“I really am happy at Arsenal at the minute. Obviously, I want to win things and I want to do it with Arsenal.”
The midfielder accepts the six year stint without a trophy isn’t good enough, but believes the criticism surrounding Arsene Wenger is incredibly harsh. He said:
“We do get a harder time from the critics than most teams but we haven’t won anything for six years and that’s not good enough for Arsenal.
“It is harsh, though, especially on the boss. He has been there for 15 years and been great for Arsenal. The criticism Arsene gets is just a joke.
“We started a bit slowly but we still feel we can finish in the top four.”
