The ex-Arsenal midfielder could be heading to Fortaleza in the north-east of the country to aid the club in their Copa Libertadores debut. The Lions finished fourth in last season's Campeonato Brasileiro Seria A to qualify for the first time.
Now they are rumoured to be looking to Wilshere for strengthening with the midfielder currently a free agent.
Talk of a move to Ibrox gained momentum across Glasgow in the latter half of last year, but Steven Gerrard’s former England team-mate eventually returned to previous club Bournemouth on a short-term deal, then left the Cherries in the summer.
He was also linked with a move to Italy at the time, though could be set for a move even further afield, having spent all but 14 games of his 14-year career in the English top flight and has been back training at Arsenal’s facilities while studying for his coaching badges.
Joey Veerman, a much-discussed midfield ‘target’ for Steven Gerrard in May and June has remained at Heerenveen after the summer speculation but his club are now reported to have rejected a bid from Feyenoord for the goalscoring 22-year-old. The Rotterdam club are, however, expected to test their resolve with an improved bid.
