JACK Wilshere is in advanced talks to join Rangers in a shock free transfer, reports say.
The 28-year-old is on the move after announcing on deadline day that he and West Ham had agreed to terminate his contract.
He is now a free agent and on the brink of a move up north.
Sports journalist Nicolo Schira reports that he is in "advanced talks" with SPL leaders Rangers, managed by Wilshere's former England teammate Steven Gerrard.
It would be a surprise move after Wilshere dropped the bombshell on Monday that he and West Ham were parting ways.
He joined his boyhood club two years ago but has endured an injury hit spell.
However, Wilshere revealed his frustration that West Ham failed to play him – even though he was fit for the last eight months.
The former Arsenal star tweeted: "I can confirm that I have today agreed the termination of my contract with West Ham United.
"When I joined the club in the summer of 2018 I joined with great hopes and expectations and was excited to join the club I'd supported as a young boy.
"Unfortunately, despite all of my best efforts and intentions, it has not worked out as I'd expected.
"I have been fully fit fit for a large period of time at the club, including over the course of the last eight months – training hard every day – but unfortunately have not been given the opportunity to play.
"Although I am of course frustrated that I was not able to fully showcase what I am capable of at West Ham I remain convinced that I can still contribute at the very top of the game."
He goes on to say that he is still "incredible hungry" and "desperate to play football".
If he moves to Ibrox, he will join a team in-form who are still unbeaten and have won eight of their opening 10 games.
Gerrard will be hoping Wilshere can provide the extra spark to help Rangers mount a title challenge against Neil Lennon's Celtic.
