Midfielder Jack Wilshere said that if Arsenal buy Wayne Rooney then he would help end the clubs trophy drought. Rooney has been heavily linked with a move to North London since the end of last season with the club’s hierarchy confirming their interest.
Wilshere believes that Rooney would make a huge impact at Arsenal and they would finally end the trophyless hoodoo that has haunted the club over recent years with him in the side. Wilshere said: “If it happens, it would be amazing. He is the type of player who can win you trophies – and just to see his name on the team sheet brings fear to the opposition. We could do with a little more of that. You look at the type of players like Higuain we are trying to bring in and you have got to be encouraged. I think we need a few more, not to step right into the team, but to add to the squad. “Wilshere added: “We need our squad to be as deep as United’s and (Manchester) City’s. They can change their back four completely and still win. There is no way United would have won the Premier League trophy with 18 players. “Wilshere added: “It is no secret we need to win a trophy.

How long has it been now, seven or eight years?The players feel the pressure and we have gotten close a few times like with the Carling Cup a couple of years ago. I think once we win one, others will follow. “
