Micky Gray believes Jack Wilshere would be a perfect fit for Manchester United and that the Arsenal man would be a great signing for any of the Premier League’s top sides.
The former Leeds, Sunderland and Blackburn star, who began his career at Old Trafford, is a huge fan of the England international, despite his future at the Emirates remaining unclear.
Wilshere’s current deal expires in 2018 and talks are yet to begin on extending his stay at Arsenal.
However, should he decide to leave, Gray is certain he wouldn’t be short of options and that he’d be a good fit for either United or Manchester City.
‘Jack Wilshere is good enough to play in any of those top six sides,’ Gray told talkSPORT.
‘He’s played at the highest level internationally, he’s played Champions League football and he doesn’t ever really let anyone down when he plays.
‘If you want to buy English this summer, where else do you go? I think he’s the perfect fit for one of the Manchester sides.
‘You’re buying a 25-year-old player, who had experience but still has his best years ahead of him. He’s still got another seven or eight years.
‘I think he’d be at a decent price. If you have to go and pay £25m or £30m for Jack Wilshere, that’s still a bargain!’
