Arsenal midfielder wanted by Pep Guardiola at Manchester City
New Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is targeting Arsenal and England midfielder Jack Wilshere as his next signing, according to a report.
Having already signed German midfield metronome Ilkay Gundogan, former Bayern Munich boss Guardiola is after another central player for his Etihad overhaul.

Jack Wilshere is top of the Spaniard's wishlist, according to the Sun.
Wilshere's severe lack of gametime, however, might be a stumbling block for the world-renowned coach:

The England man played just 141 Premier League minutes this season.
Despite this, he found a place in the England squad for Euro 2016.
Many were unhappy with Roy Hodgson’s decision to overlook Premier League winner Danny Drinkwater in favour of players such as Wilshere and Jordan Henderson.
Based on form/fitness, Henderson, Wilshere, Barkley,Sturridge may all consider themselves fortunate. In-form Drinkwater & Townsend v unlucky— Dan Roan (@danroan) May 31, 2016
