West Ham midfielder Jack Wilshere sat down for an exclusive interview with Football.London, and admitted that he needs to add more goals to his game next season.

The 27-year-old joined the Hammers on a free transfer from Arsenal in the summer of 2018.

Wilshere has really struggled to establish himself at West Ham, however. He has made just eight appearances for the east London outfit.

The Englishman will be hoping that this upcoming season is different, however.

He sat down with Football.London, and outlined how he believes he can improve this next term:

“It’s been no secret I haven’t scored enough goals. This is something I’ve been working on all summer. Finishing, striking the ball better. I feel really comfortable and I’ll be aiming to shoot more. If you don’t shoot you don’t score.”

If Wilshere can remain injury-free all season, he could prove to be a real asset for West Ham.

 

On his day, the former Arsenal man is unplayable, and Hammers fans will be hoping to see the best of the midfielder next season.

Wilshere is right, however, he really does need to improve upon his goalscoring record.

His career tally makes for pretty grim reading, with just 15 goals in 247 games.

West Ham need a fully fit and firing Jack Wilshere next season, and if he can add consistent goalscoring to his repertoire, he might just be a really important player for Manuel Pellegrini’s side this season.
