The central midfielder has opted to leave the Emirates at the end of his current contract.

That’s after discussions with new Arsenal manager Unai Emery over his role in the side.

And Parlour thinks Wilshere could move to West Ham because his father supports the Hammers.

“Jack has done brilliantly for Arsenal,” he told talkSPORT.

“I know he’s had his injury problems, but I’m sorry to see Jack leave because I love seeing homegrown players come through the ranks.

“I think his dad is a West Ham fan, so that might be the place he ends up”

“He knows what it’s like to play for Arsenal and it’s a big decision he’d made to leave the club.

“After I left the club there were two players I always saw who stood out as youngsters and I thought they would go on and have unbelievable careers – one of them was Cesc Fabregas and the other was Jack Wilshere. He wasn’t fazed by anything but his injures have just taken their toll.

“Jack needs to play football – he’s 26 years old, there’s no good him sitting on the bench or in the stand.

“Nice would be an interesting move, but he’s got two young children so staying in London might be ideal him.

“Crystal Palace and West Ham have been talked about and I think his dad is a West Ham fan, so that might be the place he ends up.

“There will be so many clubs in for Jack and whoever gets him will be getting a very, very good player.”
