Arsenal legend thinks Wilshere should resist Everton’s overtures

Former Arsenal striker Charlie Nicholas does not believe a move to Goodison Park in the summer would benefit Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere should Sam Allardyce still remain in charge of the Merseyside club, according to the Express.

The English international contract expires at the Emirates at the end of the season and has sparked rumors of leaving the north London club in the summer, after an extension deal was offered by the club but only on reduced terms due to his injury record.

However, reports making the rounds suggest that the Toffees are reportedly willing to offer the central midfielder a tantalizing signing-on fee in a bid to convince him to move to Goodison Park in the summer.

However, Arsenal hero Charlie Nicholas thinks otherwise as he believes a transfer to the Toffees would be a bad move should Allardyce still remain at the helm next season.

Charlie Nicholas as quoted on Wilshere’s potential move to Everton this summer by the Express;

“No I don’t (see him as an Everton player) personally. I think it’s too much about the shape at Everton. I think if Sam is there, and these rumours are still sparking about that he may not be there next season, then you’ve got (Gylfi) Sigurdsson who will play and I don’t think it fits for Jack Wilshere within how Sam would shape it.”

The 26-year-old looks like the Wilshere of old since returning from injury in the early stages of the season, but whether he will remain at the Emirates beyond this season is left to be seen as he might be open to a new challenge next season.

He has featured in 31 games for the Gunners across all competitions this season scoring twice and providing three assists.
