Jack Wilshere has made the bold claim that Richarlison would not get in Arsenal's starting eleven after opting for a move to Tottenham over the Emirates Stadium.
Richarlison's £60million move to north London is all but confirmed and an official announcement is expected in the coming days. The Brazilian completed a medical in his native country with Spurs' representatives.
Arsenal were in the race to sign the forward, but suffered a transfer blow after he reportedly rejected a switch. Meanwhile at Spurs, he will compete with the likes of Harry Kane, Dejan Kulusevski and Heung-min Son for regular game time, in the club's return to the Champions League next season.

Despite Gunners hero Wilshere being a fan of Richarlison, he insisted that the current attackers at Mikel Arteta 's disposal would keep the Brazilian out of the team. "Yeah [I'd have him at Arsenal], Wilshere told talkSPORT. "I don't think he gets in the XI.
"He definitely would challenge for it and would be a good part of the squad, I don't think he gets in the XI. [But] I think he improves the [Tottenham] squad, definitely," he added. "He gives them something different.
"I wouldn't say I'm gutted [as an Arsenal fan]. He's 25 so he's not young. There comes a point where he's going to have to turn all that potential into something.

"To be fair, if anyone can do it it's probably Antonio Conte. So I wouldn't say I was devastated as an Arsenal fan but I think he will be one to watch, he could be really, really good."
Conte and co. have been incredibly active in the market in the hope to boost their silverware chances next season. The Italian boss has already welcomed Fraser Forster, Ivan Perisic and Yves Bissouma to his squad.
While Spurs have never won a Premier League title, Wilshere hopes it stays that way despite the club strengthening their squad. "First of all, I'm moving to Australia if that ever happens," Wilshere continued. "It would not be as big [a shock as it was when Leicester won]. I don't think there will be a big shock as that [Leicester winning] ever again in the Premier League."
