Newly-promoted Wolverhampton Wanderers are set to begin their summer spending spree with Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere the target, claims a Birmingham Mail report.

With the club eyeing the Championship title, the Black Country boys are keen to ensure there is no resting on their laurels as they seek to ensure their return to the top flight is not short-lived.

Wilshere is available on a free transfer at the end of the season unless he agrees to a new deal which cuts his basic pay and loads his wages with performance bonuses.

The England international’s injury record demands care is taken not just by the player, but also the club. Arsenal are keen for Wilshere to remain at the Emirates but recently stated their offer was ‘take it or leave it’.

Everton have been on the trail of the mercurial midfielder for some time but now having confirmed promotion, Wolves are keen for the 26-year-old to join them.

Last summer, Arsene Wenger told Wilshere that his time at the Emirates was up but changed his mind after the England man put in a series of season-saving performances which helped Arsenal into the Europa League semi-final.

The Frenchman recently claimed he told Wilshere he wants him to stay but knows that coming into the peak years of his career, the midfielder will find himself with plenty of offers to consider.
