Wilshere’s future has been the subject of much speculation and he has revealed that he is open to a new league,

Wilshere said: "I want to play for a club where I feel like I'm an important part of it.

"I just want to play games - I want to get back to playing 25-30 games a season, when you can really get your confidence back and a smile on your face.

"Just playing football, what I used to do when I was a little bit younger. I still feel like I can do it and I want to prove everyone wrong.

"La Liga, Italy or Germany would be a nice change for me.

"I always watch La Liga, it was always something I thought about. I like the league, I think it's more technical than the English game. I think it's somewhere I could really show what I can do.”

Wilshere added in an interview with Sky Sports: "I don't think I'm too young for the MLS. If the right opportunity came up I'd be open to it."
