Former West Ham and Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere is open to a move to the MLS, according to Sky Sports.
“I don’t think I’m too young for the MLS. I think there’s been a big improvement in that league. If the right opportunity came up I’d be open to it,” he said.
Once hailed as one of England’s most naturally gifted prospects, Wilshere’s career has been blighted by injuries.
During a two year spell with West Ham after being released by boyhood club Arsenal, he made just 16 Premier League appearances.
Once hailed as a future England captain, he has not played for his country since 2016. With many talented English players coming through, his international career is likely over.
At 28-years-old, Wilshere could still have a few good years of football left in him. His injury history though makes it difficult to see any top club, let alone Premier League team offering him a contract.
Wilshere when fit, can still compete in most top leagues. If he can stay fit, he will be a good addition to any MLS team. He will also be able to contribute off the field as he has more than a decade of Premier League experience under his belt.
