DANI ALVES admits he would love Barcelona to sign Jack Wilshere. The Brazilian right-back is a huge fan of the Arsenal midfielder — and reckons he will be as good as Barca greats Xavi and Andres Iniesta.
Alves was impressed by Wilshere when England beat the Samba stars 2-1 at Wembley earlier this month. And he said: “Wilshere is a great player who I have also met playing against Arsenal. “Without doubt he can reach the heights of the players we have here at Barcelona like Xavi and Iniesta. “He has a lot of quality and a great personality.
“If I was given the chance to choose, he is a player that I would sign for Barcelona.” Barca face AC Milan in the Champions League last-16 in Italy on Wednesday. Alves added:
“They will be difficult opponents because of the tradition that they have in the competition. “You have to show them respect. Milan is not experiencing its greatest period but these will be special games. “We can’t think about what Milan is going through, we just have to play our football and work hard because we know they are going to be tough games.”
