Former England player Ray Parlour has told Jack Wilshere to join the Championship side Bournemouth following reports linking him with a move away from West Ham.
The 28-year-old is reportedly in discussions with the Hammers to cancel his contract by mutual consent as the London side look to offload the midfielder who proved to be a big flop for them.
The former Arsenal player joined the London Stadium in the summer of 2018, but he struggled with injuries and form as he managed to earn only 18 appearances in all competitions for the Hammers, scoring one goal and creating one assist.
Now Parlour has told Talksport that the English footballer may have to drop down into the Championship if he wishes to revive his career.
“The ideal club would be Bournemouth where he had that spell on loan.
“Whether they could do a deal and get him in there… I think he did okay at Bournemouth.
“He was quite influential in that midfield area and he played on a regular basis at that time.”
Currently, Jason Tindall is the manager at the Vitality Stadium following Eddie Howe’s departure in the summer.
Wilshere was said to be on high wages at the London Stadium, therefore an agreement on pay needs to take place for the 28-year-old to make a move to the Cherries.
Bournemouth is a good club who have plenty of talent in their squad and they look good enough to compete high up the Championship. The Cherries have lost some of their important players this summer, which means the England international could play a starring role.
However, he has recently been so bad that it looks like a big gamble for the Boscombe based club.
