Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere says that it would be "amazing" if Manchester United's Wayne Rooney joins the Gunners this summer.

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has admitted that it would be "amazing" if Wayne Rooney moves to the Emirates Stadium.

Rooney has been widely linked with a move away from Manchester United this summer, with Arsenal reported to be one of a number of clubs interested in his services.

"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," Wilshere told ESPN.

"You look at the type of players like [Gonzalo] 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."

Arsenal have also been linked with Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini and Real Madrid forward Gonzalo Higuain this summer.
