Arsenal midfield playmaker Jack Wilshere is a summer transfer target for West Ham, according to the Daily Star. Hammers boss Manuel Pellegrini is believed to be a big fan of Wilshere from his previous spell in the Premier League in charge of Manchester City.

Wilshere’s contract with the Gunners expires at the end of the month and the two parties are yet to agree on an extension. If an agreement is not reached, the midfielder could leave the Irons as a free agent, which means the north London club will receive no fee for the midfielder.

Arsenal were beaten by 2-1 at St. James’ Park last weekend, and as they prepare to take on West Ham on Sunday at the Emirates, manager Arsene Wenger provided a few updates.

The first point on the agenda was the fitness situation in the team. The manager revealed that goalkeeper David Ospina is back, Henrikh Mkhitaryan isn’t yet, and Jack Wilshere is a doubt due to an ankle issue. Aaron Ramsey is available despite the fact he hasn’t trained fully with the team.

On Tuesday night, Arsenal progressed to the semi-finals of the EFL Cup with a comfortable 1-0 win over West Ham, courtesy of a Danny Welbeck goal. The game was a slight non-event, as there was very little to talk about from an injury to Olivier Giroud and a chance of officials.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger also stuck to his rotation policy, which to be fair to the Frenchman has served him well this season. Weakened sides have helped the Gunners to qualify from their Europa League group, while also taking the north London side to the last four of the EFL Cup.

Arsenal recorded a 1-0 win over West Ham in the EFL Cup quarter-final on Tuesday night, with a Danny Welbeck goal enough to send the Gunners into the last four of the competition.

The opening period of the game was very lacklustre, as Arsenal passed the ball around, but to no avail. By the quarter of the hour mark, the Gunners had enjoyed 65 percent possession.

The first real threat on either goal did not come until 38 minutes. Arsenal’s Sead Kolasinac cut in from the left and aimed for the far corner of the net, but the wing-back’s effort is well off target.

Arsenal have the chance to book their place in the last-four of the EFL Cup on Tuesday night when the Gunners welcome West Ham to the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal’s recent form has been inconsistent in the Premier League. However, the Gunners head into this clash on the back of a 1-0 home win over Newcastle last time out.

The north London side have had a relatively easy route to the quarter-finals, with wins over lower league opposition Doncaster Rovers and Norwich City, although they need extra time to beat the latter in round 5.

Arsenal lack a killer instinct 0

The Arsenal players like to make life interesting for their supporters. Saturday’s 1-0 victory over Newcastle at the Emirates Stadium was a good example of that theory.

Arsenal looked in complete control in the first half and Newcastle barely threatened the Gunners goal. However, Arsenal failed to score a killer second goal.

As it is near the season of giving, the Arsenal defence decided to give the visitors some great opportunities to something from this game. Fortunately, for the Gunners, Newcastle could not find the net with a SAT NAV at the minute.
