According to the latest reports, Manchester City are lining up a bid for Arsenal’s star midfielder Jack Wilshere. With premier league rules suggesting that each club should contain eight home grown players, City are planning to bid for Wilshere setting him as their top transfer target.
Manchester City have a huge issue about the home grown players as they have so few and are likely to address them this summer as they are trying to lure some of the finest English talent available in premier league.
City have a great record of luring Arsenal players away from London as they have already signed Samir Nasri, Gael Clichy, Bacary Sagna and Emmanuel Adebayor from the Gunners.
The 23-year old English International has grown immensely last season earning plaudits from all over but he is currently injured and out of action for a while now. Liverpool were also reported to be interested in him.
However, luring Wilshere from Arsenal will not be easy for City as he is a key player in Wenger’s side and Arsenal are trying to extend his contract by offering a whopping £150,000-a-week deal and his contract will end in June 2018.
City main concern is during summer when Frank Lampard, James Milner are expected to move away from them with Lampard’s loan spell coming to an end and Milner’s contract also runs out at the end of the season.
City have named Clichy, Joe Hart, Richard Wright, Dedryck Boyata, James Milner, Frank Lampard, Scott Sinclair and John Guidetti in the home grown players list this season.
Premier League clubs are allowed 17 non-British players in their 25 man squads, leaving eight spaces for home grown players to make up the numbers.
