Crystal Palace have reportedly joined the race to sign Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere.
The 26-year-old’s contract at the Emirates Stadium is due to expire at the end of this month, and talks over an extension have so far failed to yield an agreement.
In addition, recent reports have suggested that Wilshere has been told by new Gunners manager Unai Emery that he is unlikely to be a regular first-team player next season.
According to The Mirror, Palace boss Roy Hodgson is keen to bring Wilshere to Selhurst Park, having worked with him in the England setup.
The Eagles are said to be looking for reinforcements in a bid to kick on from last season’s successful Premier League survival battle, and a player of Wilshere’s pedigree is believed to fit Hodgson’s bill.
West Ham United, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Everton are also believed to be interested in Wilshere.
