The former Arsenal footballer believes the Austrian West Ham United player is “up there” with the best strikers in the English Premier League

Jack Wilshere is enjoying playing alongside Marko Arnautovic in the English Premier League club West Ham United.

And today he took some time to praise him as one of the best strikers he has ever played with.

“Arnautovic is some player,” Wilshere told Football 365.

“I’ve played with some strikers, great players and he is up there. He is right up there.”

“Ability-wise he’s powerful, he’s got so much in his game. His attitude is brilliant. He’s a good character and is one of the leaders in the team as well,” he added.

“Before I went to West Ham I didn’t know with him, but he’s been great from day one.”

“He welcomed me in. He gives me a bit of stick but I can handle it,” he concluded.
