Jack Wilshere is a reported target for Manchester City, with the former Premier League champions looking to bolster their home-grown roster. The 23-year-old has no interest in leaving however, and says Arsenal is where he belongs, as reported by the BBC.
The Citizens are lacking in home-grown players at the moment, even more so than usual following the departure of James Milner (via the BBC). The England international joined Liverpool on a free transfer, and the report suggests City are looking to replace him with Wilshere.
The life long Gunner insists he’s going nowhere though, and claims he has no intentions of leaving the Emirates.
“I wouldn’t go somewhere just because I’m a home-grown player,” Wilshere said, according to the BBC.
“I’d want to be wanted by a club; I want to be wanted by Arsenal.

“I’ve grown up at Arsenal. As long as Arsenal want me, I’m happy.”
Wilshere has the potential to be the future of our midfield, and if he can get over his injury problems he could prove hugely important to us next season.
He has shown the quality he possesses since returning from injury this season, and his availability gives Arsene Wenger a superb selection headache.
