The 28-year-old England internationalist is a free agent and has been linked consistently with a move to current Premiership leaders Rangers, as well as clubs across Europe and in America.

The ex-Arsenal midfielder reportedly turned down a move to an unnamed club in Australia last weekend as speculation continues over his future.

While Steven Gerrard is an admirer of a one-time international team-mate, the Rangers boss has an extremely strong midfield already.

Wilshere would add quality to the Ibrox dressing-room, but that would come at a cost, with wages expected to be well over the £30,000-per-week mark.

With Ryan Jack, Scott Arfield, Glen Kamara, Steven Davis, Bongani Zungu, Joe Aribo and Ianis Hagi all vying for midfield berths, it is not an area Rangers need to reinforce.

What is Wilshere’s likely destination?

The suggestion is a club in America. Wilshere has talked favourably about the MLS before.
