Although his Arsenal career was plagued by injuries, Wilshere did play at the highest level for several years during his time at North London, and this character trait could be very useful for West Ham.

"I've got good memories of my childhood supporting West Ham, watching them at Upton Park".

"I hope that, next week, or before we finish July, the fans of West Ham will have good news", he told the club's official website .

"My family and a few of my friends are West Ham fans so everyone's buzzing".

West Ham United will reportedly listen to offers of more than £15m for Michail Antonio, while two other midfielders may also be offloaded. He will join up with Pellegrini's squad for their pre-season training camp in Switzerland.

However, Wilshere admitted on Monday that he supported the Hammers as a boy and talked about the "special bond" that he had with the club while he was growing up.

Chelsea are claimed to have now set their sights on Anderson, but West Ham are pressing the accelerator in a bid to make sure the Brazilian is plying his trade at the London Stadium next season.

Wilshere - whose contract ran out at the end of June - chose to look for a new club when new Gunners manager Unai Emery told him he would not be a first choice next season.

"Jack Wilshere basically, it's the early stages of retirement going to West Ham".

The club are edging closer to smashing their transfer record to sign Lazio winger Felipe Anderson. After 17 years at Arsenal, the 26-year-old has moved on and joined West Ham.

"They called me not every day but a lot of times telling me to come here", he said.
