The England international is on loan at Bouremouth for the season after falling down the pecking order under Arsene Wenger at the Emirates Stadium.

Although Wilshere has only one assist and no goals to his name this season, the 24-year-old has been an important part of Eddie Howe’s outfit.

Wilshere’s contract with the Gunners is up in the summer of 2018 and the club and player will no doubt be keen to resolve matters soon.

Italian website Calcio Mercato claims that AC Milan and Roma are looking at the possiblity of bringing the midfielder over to Serie A.

Both clubs have fairly recently been boosted by new owners and the investment will help fund any bids for Wilshere.

Manchester City have also been linked with Wilshere, with Pep Guardiola thought to be a fan of his playing style.
