Wilshere said:

“It doesn’t concern me, no – I’m an Arsenal fan!

“Listen, Harry is one of the best strikers in the world.

When you think about the top strikers in the world: [Robert] Lewandowski, [Karim] Benzema, Harry Kane. Goalscorers.

“Harry scores goals, he’s always scored goals.

He might have a little dip now and then, but he always comes back.

“He’s a player who is technically so good in front of goal, with his left foot, right foot.

“Tottenham have had a difficult spell as well, so at times that’s difficult for a striker when he’s not getting chances created for him.

“But Harry is a top player, he’s been top player for years, and he’ll come back.

“He’ll come back for club and country strongly and he’ll score goals.

Wherever he is he’s scored goals, that’s just the type of player he is.”
