Cape Town - Arsenal's Jack Wilshere reportedly remains on Manchester City's radar but is not their first option in the summer transfer market.

The Sun report that Manchester City will move for Jack Wilshere if they cannot secure a deal for Paul Pogba.

Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba remains Manchester City's number one priority with the dethroned English champions willing to match the Serie A club's £71 million asking price.

City face an uphill battle of convincing Pogba to return to England with La Liga giants Barcelona and Real Madrid also interested in the talented midfielder. PSG are also interested in signing the 22-year-old midfielder.

Reports in England suggest that if City fail to sign Pogba, the Manchester club will make a sensational move for home-grown Jack Wilshere.

Wilshere will cost upwards of £40 million but any move to bring the England international would depend on Pogba's summer movements.

Arsene Wenger will be reluctant to let Wilshere join the likes of Gael Clichy, Samir Nasri, Emmanuel Adebayor and Kolo Toure, who have been sold to Manchester City in recent seasons.
