It seems Arsene Wenger's very public "get your hands off my man" to Man City over Jack Wilshere wasn't enough to put off the cash-rich club, as the Mirror report today.
Man City have stepped up their interest in the 23 year old after deciding homegrown talent is the way to rectify a poor season by their standards.
Even if Arsenal have decided they don't want to sell, the interest is likely to unsettle the player and frustrate Arsene Wenger no end. Even the fans could end up turning on Wilshere himself unless he makes his plans to stick with the Gunners public. Just ask Stevie G.
Wilshere would join a long list of Arsenal players who've made the journey up the M1, including Nasri, Adebayor, Toure and Clichy.
What do you reckon Arsenal fans? Would you really miss him? Could the money be better spent on someone more reliable? Let us know in the comments below.
