Jack Wilshere is hoping that his summer move to West Ham United will aid him in his chances to resurrect his international career with England
The midfielder opted to end his nearly 17-year association with Arsenal last month to join West Ham United on a free transfer following unsuccessful talks with new boss Unai Emery.
Wilshere has endured many injury problems over the past few years and has seen his once-promising career decline rapidly from being one of Europe’s brightest young talents, that had even caught the eye of Lionel Messi once, to a mere shadow of his former self.
The 26-year-old failed to make England’s World Cup squad this summer and has not actually played at international level since 2016.
But, despite receiving offers from abroad, Wilshere is determined to remain in the Premier League in order to return to the England squad one day.
“That’s a big reason why I stayed in the Premier League. I’ve always said before, I love playing for my country, I’m proud to do it and it’s been a while since I’ve done it,” said Wilshere, according to Sky Sports.
Wilshere may be in line to make his debut for West Ham in their third pre-season friendly against Preston North End on Saturday.
