Jack Wilshere

When you can count Bastian Schweinsteiger, Dani Alves and Steven Gerrard as admirers, you know you are doing something right. Arsenal's youngest-ever league debutante at just 16 years old, Jack Wilshere was once described by Arsene Wenger as having 'Spanish technique but an English heart'. There is no better way to describe a player whose movement, vision and passing belie his tender years. A Gunner through and through, Wilshere is easily the most technically gifted player England has seen since Wayne Rooney. If he can remain injury-free, Wilshere looks set to finally make his mark in on both the Premier League and European stage in 2016.
