Jack Wilshere: 'Arsenal's new shape is similar to the Invincibles'

Jack Wilshere: 'Arsenal's new shape is similar to the Invincibles'

The midfielder is fully fit and pushing for Premier League action at the Emirates.

The 25-year-old made a full recovery from a broken leg prior to the global break, playing the full 90 minutes in the Carabao Cup win over Doncaster Rovers and in the Europa League success at BATE Borisov. But now, according to The Times, the Arsenal player may be thinking about joining West Ham in the January window.

Speaking ahead of Arsenal's trip to Watford on Saturday, Wenger said: "I believe that Jack at the moment is in the best form I have seen him for a long time". He is very close to being considered like everybody else.

The England worldwide has said that the 3-4-3 formation allows the ball to be played further up the pitch, much like the side that went the entire league season without defeat.

"I can play in the deeper midfield role, which I did against Doncaster, and then I went and played on the left", Wilshere told Arsenal's official website.

To help Wilshere recover from numerous spells out injured, Wilshere spent last season on loan at Bournemouth and played 27 times in the Premier League - the first time he played more than 20 games since the 2013/14 season.

"If he keeps going like he is he will go the World Cup".

The 25-year-old is yet to feature for Arsenal in the Premier League this season but boss Arsene Wenger has intimated he will play his part and he retains faith in the England global despite his well-documented injury history.

However, the Arsenal academy graduate has been named on the bench for the past two games, and could yet make an appearance in their trip to Watford on Saturday evening.
