Considered by many as the most promising youngster in English football, midfielder Jack Wilshere believes there is still room for improvement in his game.
Speaking to supporters at a Q&A in the WM Club at Emirates Stadium last week, the 18-year old revealed Cesc Fabregas is currently the best midfielder in the English Premiership and he can be easily compared to giants of the game such as Roy Keane and Patrick Vieira.
On the Frenchman, Wilshere declared how the way he read the game and his tackles were top class and something he would be delighted to add to his game.
The Englishman, who revealed he is working to improve his right-foot skills, was full of praise for the Gunners captain, saying how they talk a lot with the Spaniard always full of advice as he knows what it means to be a regular at a young age.
On his game, Wilshere said:
I think at the minute Cesc Fabregas is the best midfielder in the Premier League but in the past there have been players like Roy Keane and Patrick Vieira – all complete midfielders.
I was on the books when Patrick was still here and I think the way he tackled and intercepted play is something I would add to my game.
Cesc talks to me and tells me what I need to do. He was 16 when he burst onto the scene so you just need to talk to the senior players like him and they help you through.
The strongest part of my game at the moment is my passing – which is good as that’s the way Arsenal play – and my weakest is probably my right foot, but I’m working on that.
I try to use my right foot but it could be better.
