Jack Wilshere has returned to pre-season training despite the fact that his Arsenal future remains unclear.
The midfielder spent last season on loan at Bournemouth but didn’t make the impact he may have expected.
A broken leg ruled him out of the final month of their Premier League campaign, but he has at least returned to fitness in time to link up with the Gunners.
As the England international enters the final year of his contract, he is expected to leave the club where he came up through the ranks.
The Independent suggest that while he has attracted the interest of several foreign clubs, the 25-year-old would like to stay in England – and specifically, he does not want to move out of London.
That means West Ham is his preferred destination, though the Clarets are yet to make a formal approach and it remains to be seen if they will.
Slaven Bilic has already proven his ambition this summer with the signings of Javier Hernandez from Bayer Leverkusen and Marko Arnautovic from Stoke.
