Jack Wilshere move to Manchester City seems unlikely

Published Add your comment

As Manchester City look to draw up a list of potential signings this summer, speculation is mounting as to who will be on the club's radar.

A boost to their home grown contingent is something that could very well be in order and according to reports in the Sunday papers the list contains some familiar names to those who follow the rumour mill.

Long time reported City target Ross Barkley features once again but, with the player's decline in form this season, and Everton's high valuation or around £50m, this one looks more and more unlikely.

Aaron Cresswell has been very impressive for West Ham since his summer move and it is not the first time his name has cropped up in connection to City. The Englishman, if he arrived, would provide competition for that troublesome left back role.

A new name in the mix and probably the most unlikely of them all is Arsenal's Jack Wilshere, though City have not been apposed to raiding the north London club in the past, with Emmanuel Adebayor, Kolo Toure, Samir Nasri, Gael Clichy and, most recently, Bacary Sagna crossing the north/south divide.

I for one don't see this rumour having any legs, especially with suggestions that Arsene Wenger is ready to offer the tenacious midfielder a new £150,000-per-week contract.

With reports that the midfielder flipped the bird to City fans back in 2013 I doubt very much that this Gunner would be welcomed into the blue army.

Can you see Manchester City signing any of these three players?
