Arsenal star Jack Wilshere has revealed his desire to win the Barclays Premier League this season.
Speaking to The Sports News channel on Youtube, Wilshere said: "This year we [Arsenal] really feel we can be serious about it [winning the Premier League]"
"It'd be nice, after the 38 games of a long season, to be the best in the league."
The 22-year-old has been superb for Arsenal this term, and the north London side currently sit at the top of the table - one point ahead of Manuel Pellegrini's free-scoring Manchester City.
The Englishman has featured heavily this season for Arsenal, scoring five goals and assisting three more in 23 appearances for the Gunners. He is enjoying one of his most consistent seasons at the Emirates, having previously suffered with severe injuries early in his Arsenal career.
"This is my sixth season [in the Premier League]," the midfielder said. "We've done well every year, don't get me wrong. But we've only finished fourthand haven't really mounted a title challenge. Not a serious one anyway."
But this season the England international feels their challenge is a very serious one. Sitting at the top of the table and playing some really good football, Arsene Wenger's side must be starting to dream of lifting the trophy in May.
The signing of German midfielder Mesut Ozil gave the Gunners an incredible boost, which they have capitalised on, with all their key players performing well when they have been selected to play.
Jack Wilshere will also be vying for a spot in Roy Hodgson's squad for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil and his Premier League title ambitions will do nothing to dent his chances with the England boss.
