Kolasinac, who joined the Gunners on a free transfer after his contract with Schalke expired in the summer, has made an instant impact at his new club. I believe that Jack is in the best form I've seen him for a long time.

"He is very close now to being considered like anybody else".

"He didn't want me to play as a left winger".

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger feels Jack Wilshere is enjoying some of the best form of his career and expects the midfielder to be part of England's World Cup squad.


Crystal Palace are also being credited with an interest and Wilshere will be aware he needs to be playing regularly as he attempts to force his way back into the England fold ahead of next summer's World Cup in Russian Federation.

"We haven't got that little bit of magic that can unlock the door and I think Jack Wilshere, if he can get fit and keep playing".

"He has played games since the start of the season and he will play many more".

"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 Player.


But the 25-year-old caught the eye with a bright performance when starting against BATE Borisov in the Europa League, in September.

England boss Gareth Southgate is, the report claims, in constant contact with the Arsenal medical team but wants to see Wilshere in action for himself before calling him into the squad. It is nearly a year since he was named in an worldwide squad. He can open spaces, he can play in tight areas and he can get out of tight areas as well'.

Palace know they need an injection of quality, after what has been a disastrous campaign to date, and Roy Hodgson is said to be keen to make Wilshere his first signing of the January window.
