Jack Wilshere has said that he would "love" to play with Luis Suarez at Arsenal next season, during an interview with BT Sport, reports the Daily Mail.
When asked if he'd like to be on the same team as Suarez, he said: "'Any player would love to.
"He's a top player and he showed that last season. He brings something different to the team and scores goals.
"He's a great player, I'd love to see him here. But you never know. I can't talk about other players. He's still playing for another team so it's disrespectful. We'll see what happens in the next few weeks."
The young Arsenal midfielder is looking forward to the new season, and claims he is fully fit - something he hasn't been consistently for a long time.
Wilshere gave the interview after Arsenal came back from 2-0 down against Napoli to earn a 2-2 draw in their first game of the Emirates Cup this weekend.
Despite having only signed 20-year-old Yaya Sanogo this summer, Wilshere remains confident Wenger will spend money on bringing in some quality additions ahead of the 2013/14 Premier League campaign, which kicks off in less than two weeks' time.
When asked if he thought signings would improve the team's confidence, Wilshere said: "I think it will.
"New signings and big players always bring confidence. The players get excited when they hear the names being splashed about.
"We'll see what the manager does. We trust him and the club. I'm sure there will be some players coming in."
After the game against Napoli, Olivier Giroud was also quoted as saying: "We are expecting a striker."
It seems the players know more than they are willing to let on, with possible signings still entirely on the cards.
