Dream scenario, Kouyate sold or left somewhere, Wilshere takes the number 8 shirt for years to come…

I know he's had injury issues in the past but still a great addition, experienced, doesn't give too much respect to any oppo. Especially with lanzini out for a bit

It is clear to see that this is a signing which is getting the vast majority of Hammers fans extremely excited. Not only is this a good signing, but the club look to be moving super quick in their efforts to wrap it up. That is likely down to a desire for Wilshere to join the rest of the squad in Switzerland for pre-season training. His recent injury issues mean that it is vital he gets in as much work before the season starts as possible, and Manuel Pellegrini will be well aware of that. All in all, this is a stellar move from the club in what has been a brilliant window so far.
