This FM 2013 player profile of Jack Wilshere probably shows one of the best midfielders available this year. Jack develops into an absolute beauty, with attributes such as 20 technique, 19 passing, 20 flair, 20 creativity, 18 first touch and 17 balance. These skills make him unstoppable on the ball and a genius maestro that can see the game two moves ahead of his opponent.

One of a kind is the only way to describe this wonderkid, £37.5 million is a lot, but Wilshere is probably worth more TBH. Just look at those average ratings during my save, incredible!

Best buy rating: 10/10

    Gotze or Wilshere, what’s your opinion?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 11, 2012

      Can’t realistically compare them as they are different in many ways. But would probably opt for Wilshere.

  • comment avatar Jamie November 11, 2012

    Wow just wow. What a player he is IRL and on FM

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 11, 2012

      I agree, you just can’t train some of those mental attributes.

  • comment avatar Miles Smith November 11, 2012

    I would struggle getting him to my Tottenham side I think, I think I’ll have to stick with Gotze & Maher. Speaking of Gotze make sure you get him early because he only get’s more expensive in the second season!

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 11, 2012

      I have noticed Gotze’s asking price increase too. Looks like a deadly duo you have there.

  • comment avatar mubixx November 11, 2012

    I’m Arsenal already but i want to know… what position is he most effective in?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 12, 2012

      I think the report says AMC but it depends on your tactic.

  • comment avatar Bjørk Lange November 11, 2012

    Jack is insane in FM13, and as a Gunners Fan, it is wonderfull to see. I have had must succes in playing him at AMC as a advanced playmaker attack. He never has a bad game, lots of assists and even scores a few.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 12, 2012

      He does seem like the complete player.

  • comment avatar Greg Pancoust November 12, 2012

    Has anyone managed to buy him yet? Considering what he said IRL that he will never leave. I first heard that of him a while ago and lately.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 12, 2012

      I got to contract negotiations when bidding with Utd to test his asking price. Andy Carroll said he’d never leave the Toon two weeks before he signed with Liverpool.

      • comment avatar Karl Deighton November 12, 2012

        And Fernando Torres said he would never leave Liverpool ;)

  • comment avatar Ihsan November 13, 2012

    Purchased him with Villa after 3 seasons after he he was unhappy at Arsenal for 17mill. He is class in midfield, trained him as an advanced playmaker in midfield and is very good. I have xhaka and pedro alongside him, with cirigliano holding…any other ideas on a quality midfielder/defensive midfielder?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 13, 2012

      Just check the ultimate list for more players.

  • comment avatar darock November 13, 2012

    Bah, what a beast! England just need to clone him to play all positions in midfield :D

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 13, 2012

      Definitely, we could do with a few more of Jack.

  • comment avatar Greg Pancoust November 20, 2012

    Good point Darren on my last comment.

  • comment avatar Greg Pancoust November 20, 2012

    Maher or Wilshere in future?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 20, 2012

      Wilshere for quality and Maher for price.

  • comment avatar Greg Pancoust November 20, 2012

    On the cloning thing what about this for a new Christmas song for the England squad. 5 Jack Wilsheres,4 Wayne Rooneys 3 younger Terrys 2 Ashley coles and a Joe as Goalie. Lame I Know

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 20, 2012

      I think we have a new number 1 ;)

  • comment avatar Mehul Rajgor November 23, 2012

    Hi Darren,

    Thanks for getting back to me about Admilson earlier. I have a question, I’ve just got Wilshere for £35 and Maher, I am Newcastle and using your tactic for it, who would you play as the advanced playmaker and the central midfielder (with support)? Both have the quality to play as the playmaker but who do you think would be a better fit?

    Thanks mate.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 23, 2012

      TBH I think you should have Wilshere from AMR and Maher from AP, but if that isn’t an option use Maher as MC support and Wilshere as the AP.

      • comment avatar Mehul Rajgor November 24, 2012

        Thanks mate. I think I will play Maher as MC Support then and Wilshere as the AP. On the right I have Wellinton Nem on the right and Eric Lamela on the left, with Nem getting 27 assits the season before, so don’t want to change that. But thanks mate

  • comment avatar Nik December 24, 2012

    Arsenal transfer listed him in the Summer of 2014 in my save, grabbed him for Liverpool and have him taking over Steven Gerrard’s spot for the next decade. Absolutely feeds my wingers, Neymar and Yarmolenko.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith December 24, 2012

      He would be an amazing coup if available free.

  • comment avatar aruss December 28, 2012

    yea so wilshere just destroys in my save. play him as AMCR and cuts inside, just puts it to teams game in and game out.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith December 28, 2012

      He is one of few complete players when fully developed.

  • comment avatar Iker Muniain January 3, 2013

    Have you ever signed this guy Darren provind extremely hard, even when Arsenal finished 15th on the first season, any advice

    • comment avatar Darren Smith January 3, 2013

      No I haven’t but to be fair I’ve never tried though I have seen a few occasions where he’s move to me but not acted. Its all about timing really.

  • comment avatar Iker Muniain January 4, 2013

    Thanks Darren he become available in the summer and I got a 22 million pound bid accepted only for him to say no to the deal which is fair enough, but good news Will Hughes will be used much more

  • comment avatar Andi January 15, 2013

    Hello:) Toni Kroos or Wilshere?:) I’m in 2016.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith January 15, 2013

      Will depend on how they’ve developed in your game but Wilshere for me.

  • comment avatar Danny January 31, 2013

    Wow, Wilshere is incredible in 2013 he has scored 17 for me this season and it’s only January (I’m in third season by the way). I have noticed that many English players have been given attributes this year. And that certainly has helped with my now entire English arsenal squad.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith February 1, 2013

      Yeah the English kids seem to have a vote of confidence form SI this year, great compared to the limited options we have most years. :)

  • comment avatar Faith Ogundele February 3, 2013

    I signed wilshere by offering nani in exchange. I now have wilshere and gotze. should I play wilshere as a cm support?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith February 3, 2013

      Depends on your tactic and other players but I would want to use him in a more attacking role really.

  • comment avatar Newbie February 5, 2013

    Should I go for Isco or Wilshere for AMC?

    Or should I go for both while having Isco in AMC and Wilshere in CM?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith February 5, 2013

      I’d use both with Isco as AMC.

      • comment avatar newbie February 6, 2013

        Thank you for all the quick replies Darren. Appreciate them!

        A follow-up question will be how to make use of them the best (in terms of playing postion) if I got Gotze, Wilshere, Isco at the same time.

        Or would you advice not to get them all and get any particular 2 instead?

        • comment avatar Darren Smith February 6, 2013

          TBH you should look at your tactic and sign players to suit it, not sign players and then try to work them into a tactic so I can’t really answer your question, just find out their preferred roles through a scouting report and see if they fit into your system, if they all do then get them is not don’t

          • comment avatar Newbie February 6, 2013

            You got a point.

            But what I mean is, in terms of playing AMC, as I see all preferred the role of advanced playmaker, which of the 3 will you choose?

            And whether if you have tried to see if they can coop when playing two in the same match.

          • comment avatar Darren Smith February 6, 2013

            I understand, personally I’d go for Wilshere if you want someone in that role too tirelessly run around and play the smart game…but if you want a little burst of magic (sacrificing the work rate) then Isco is best. I have never tried them together before though, so couldn’t comment on that.

  • comment avatar Rohan February 12, 2013

    Hi Daarren, I have a Better Future Screenshot of Wilshere than the one on the Profile, he is still only 24 and has more or less developed fully….You can Put it up as an Extra Profile with The Orignal one also Kept…..
    Would you like me to Upload it?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith February 12, 2013

      Yeah you can upload, these screenshots were with CPU management and we prefer to show good CPU management over reasonable human management but if he’s a lot better then we’ll use yours.

  • comment avatar Jeraldo March 4, 2013

    Doesnt seem like his health is a problem based on the screenshots. Signed this guy for 22.5 million on my 4th yr as Newcastle Manager.

  • comment avatar pedro March 8, 2013

    is wilshere good at aml ? i know that he makes wonders at midle.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith March 8, 2013

      Never tried him there, you’d have to test it to know for sure.

  • comment avatar Mihail V March 12, 2013

    Dis anyone succeeded to stop him from going forward whenever possible? I want to use him in a 3 5 2 as a DLP and a can’t with this preferred move.
    I tried to stop him 3 times to do that and no pozitive result.
    Any advise? Thanks

    • comment avatar Darren Smith March 12, 2013

      Never tried but by Wilshere’s very nature I don’t see him ever changing that part of his game, he is an attacking midfielder so think you are trying to change him into a role he’ll never be best at.

  • comment avatar Alberto May 13, 2013

    I just signed for Liverpool after two succesful years at Getafe, and I was surprised to see Wilshere was willing to move to Anfield.

    Did’t think twice before paying £34 million for him. I absolutely love his team work, creativity and passing (essential for my tactics).

    Would love to see my Real Madrid sign him IRL! ;)

    Nice profile, Darren.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith May 13, 2013

      He is a great player, potentially probably the best at what he does.

  • comment avatar eiyup June 8, 2013

    he grow much much better in my save for man utd..i develope him as an inside foward.. and he is still developing..

    • comment avatar Darren Smith June 8, 2013

      Yeah I’d always expect him to grow more under human management.

      • comment avatar Ola June 25, 2013

        Darren, what do you think of training him as a MC? And what’s the best buy as a MC to play next to Fellaini. Thiago, Wilshere or Verratti?
        Thank you for an awesome site and the fast and good responding

        • comment avatar Darren Smith June 25, 2013

          I think its a wise choice, he’s great at making runs from deep and picking out passes. I’d be torn between Thiago and Wilshere, if you’re an English side Wilshere though.

          • comment avatar Whoop whoop July 23, 2013

            Just got him for 12.5 mill and part exchange for Ashley young! Now that’s happy days in anybody’s eyes

          • comment avatar Darren Smith July 23, 2013

            Happy days indeed, ridiculous bargain.

  • comment avatar Whoop whoop July 23, 2013

    A big thankyou to you and the rest of the boys who have put a lot of time into this site, I always refer back to here when looking at new players. Awesome job

    • comment avatar Darren Smith July 23, 2013

      Thanks for the kind words mate, just happy to help.

  • comment avatar Major Tom October 23, 2013

    Wilshire picks up far too many yellow cards.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 23, 2013

      Just note that this is still the BETA, so could be a problem in the ME as opposed to the player.
