Wolverhampton Wanderers reportedly made an offer for Jack Wilshere but he has swapped Arsenal for Premier League neighbours West Ham United instead.

They will be looking to build a squad at least capable of breaking back into the top four next season after they finished in fifth place and won the FA Cup under Antonio Conte last term.

The club are edging closer to smashing their transfer record to sign Lazio winger Felipe Anderson.

The ex-Arsenal star completed his move to West Ham yesterday by signing a three-year contract.

"It's well known that I come from a family of Hammers and it's a special moment to sign", he said.

While stressing on the subject of him and his family being supporters of the club, he said, "People will have seen the picture of me in a West Ham shirt, and I've got good memories of my childhood supporting West Ham, watching them at Upton Park".

Billy Dee Williams to Reprise Role as Lando Calrissian in Episode IX
Star Wars: Episode IX will be produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Michelle Rejwan, Abrams, Bad Robot, and Lucasfilm . Williams is perhaps best known for his role as Lando, who first appeared in The Empire Strikes Back in 1980.

"The fans, of course - everyone knows how big West Ham's fanbase is - and especially in this new stadium".

However, Wilshere admitted on Monday that he supported the Hammers as a boy and talked about the "special bond" that he had with the club while he was growing up.

Wilshere might have played more games last season (38) than in any campaign since 2010/11 but his reputation appears to be at rock bottom.

In a conversation with the West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini the midfielder now looks set to stay in England by signing a three-year contract worth £100,000 per week.

Despite that, Wilshere graduated from the Arsenal academy which he joined aged-9, but now he can fulfil one of his dreams of featuring for West Ham as a player.
