There has been ‘no contact’ between Rangers and Jack Wilshere over a possible move to Ibrox – although the former England star is willing to consider a move to Ibrox, according to a report.

According to the PA’s Andy Newport, there hasn’t been any move to bring the ex-Arsenal and West Ham midfielder north of the border after his Hammers contract was ripped up on deadline day.

Any move for Wilshere would really get fans excited but there would be some massive risks given his injury history since breaking through at Arsenal.

After pocketing a reported £4million from West Ham as a result of his contract being ended a year early, there might not be quite as much financial pressure on securing a short-term deal for him.

Wilshere told TalkSport he just wants to play football regularly again and a move to Ibrox would surely give him that opportunity if he could remain fit.

The 28-year-old made 34 appearances for the English national team, scoring twice but after a stress fracture on his ankle in 2011 he wouldn’t start a Premier League match for 17 months and he would later require ankle surgery after a separate problem a few years later.

There would then be another a major blow when he broke his fibula in 2015, keeping him out for 10 months and he’s never really got playing again regularly since.

Wilshere insists he has been fit since early 2020 and wasn’t given a chance at West Ham but without playing games, it is hard to tell if his body will cope with playing regular football again.

Rangers fans would love to see Wilshere at Ibrox but whether it actually happens or not is anyone’s guess just now.
