Wilshere’s career has been plagued by injuries but made 38 appearances for the Gunners last season, more than the previous three seasons combined and most since 2010-11.

The 26 year old’s last appearance for Arsenal came in 5-0 win over Burnley in Arsene Wenger’s final home game.

A West Ham fan as a boy, Wilshere has been linked with the club since the summer of his loan move to Bournemouth ahead of the 2016-17 season.

He said: “It feels good, it feels special.

“Many people know that I’ve had a special bond with this Club growing up.

“People will have seen the picture of me in a West Ham shirt and I’ve got good memories of my childhood supporting West Ham, watching them at Upton Park. It feels good and of course my family and a few of my friends are West Ham fans so everyone’s buzzing.”

West Ham begin their Premier League campaign under Pellegrini with a trip to Liverpool on August 12.
