Arsenal need to keep Manchester City target Jack Wilshere to enhance their chances of winning silverware, according to David Seaman.
The England international has emerged as a surprise target for the defending Premier League champions amid reports the Citizens are willing to offer the midfielder a bumper £150,000-a-week contract.
The 23-year-old, who has been sidelined with an injury problem since late November, has three years remaining on his current contract, which is valued at a reported 90,000-a-week.
Arsenal legend Seaman emphasised that the north London side can’t afford to lose their best players to their Premier League rivals.
Seaman wrote on BreatheSport: “To win trophies you need to keep your best players!! Enough said!!”
Wilshere hasn’t featured for Arsene Wenger’s side since a 2-1 defeat by Manchester United at The Emirates in November.
The England midfielder was forced to undergo an operation on his ankle earlier this year to solve the long-standing problem.
Wilshere has scored one goal and has made one assist in 12 appearances in all competitions for the Gunners this season.
