Jack Wilshere said a move to David Beckham’s MLS franchise Inter Miami would be “nice” as he ponders his next move while training with Arsenal ahead of the January transfer window
Jack Wilshere said a move to Inter Miami would be “nice” as he responded to speculation linking him with David Beckham’s MLS franchise.
The former Gunners midfielder is keeping up his fitness levels until the new year – and that has led to talk he could head to the United States when the MLS season starts in January.
Injuries derailed his career, but he is still keen to play at the highest level possible – and that could mean a move to the States.
“But I would also like to play abroad.”
He added: “I’m training with Arsenal ‘til the end of January, the MLS start their pre-season in January.”
The 29-year-old replied, “Oh that would be nice,” before asking Bent to put a word in as the two played together for England.
“You must know Becks? You played with him! Give him a call. Any chance, 10%?”
Inter Miami boss Phil Neville is reportedly planning a clear-out of his squad, which includes the likes of Gonzalo Higuain and Blaise Matuidi, at the end of the current season after the Florida-based lost their last six of their last seven games.
Meanwhile, Wilshere is “looking forward to being more involved” after starting a new temporary role at Arsenal.

While he trains with the Gunners, he is helping out his former club’s academy and was a coach on Tuesday evening in their under-17s’ match.
“Thought the boys were brilliant and played some really good football.
“Looking forward to being involved more!”
Mikel Arteta welcomed his former team-mate back to Arsenal’s Colney training centre earlier this month.
The Gunners boss told Arsenal.com : “What you should believe is that we want to help Jack prepare for his next stage, physically, mentally.
“He wants to do his coaching badges again and we are prepared to fulfil all the needs that he wants.
“That is basically the idea and it is no further than that. I am very happy to have him back.”
