George Graham believes Jack Wilshere is one of only a few world-class players at Arsene Wenger’s disposal at Arsenal.

The 21-year-old midfielder has developed into a talismanic player for the north Londoners since his return to action this season following his lengthy lay-off last term.

Wilshere is currently sidelined with an ankle injury, but Arsenal hope he could return in time for Saturday’s Premier League clash with Norwich City at Emirates Stadium.

And former Arsenal boss Graham believes the England international’s return will give the Gunners a timely boost as they continue to chase a top-four finish.

“Jack Wilshere is one of the few world-class players in the team,” Graham told talkSPORT.

“He was out for so long and they missed him.

“He’s not only got wonderful technical ability, but he’s a natural winner. They need that drive from midfield, without question.”
