Having won FA Cup medals with the Gunners, Wilshere played alongside the likes of Santi Cazorla, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and even Thierry Henry during the Frenchman’s brief return in 2012.

But when asked by talkSPORT who the best of all was, it had to be Fabregas.

Wilshere, 29, said: “Probably Cesc Fabregas.

“He played in the Premier League – just after the ‘Invincibles’ side – at 16.

“You won’t see that anymore. Even players like (Phil) Foden, he only started at 18.

“I learnt a lot from him as he was my captain as well. People don’t realise he was a great leader.

“He was a talker on the pitch, in the dressing room. He would motivate us and he was the dressing room he was the loudest.

“He would lead by his performances too. I played with him so many times where he would create around ten chances on his own and control the game by himself.”

When it came to his England team-mates, 34-cap Wilshere chose pal and Three Lions legend Wayne Rooney as the best of all.

He added: “For everything he’s done in his career, Rooney..

“He was an animal. Strong, quick and aggressive.

“He had an amazing football brain too.”
