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. Now plying his trade on the south coast with Bournemouth, Wilshere remains a staple of the England set-up, demanding the ball at every opportunity in his role as a central midfield terrier.
