Jack Wilshere believes Gareth Bale is not good enough to get a game for Arsenal.

The 32-year-old is currently a free agent after leaving Real Madrid and has been in talks over a move to Premier League club Cardiff City.

Bale secured his £85.3m transfer to Real Madrid in 2013 after his sublime performances for Tottenham.

But Wilshere believes Bale’s best days are behind him and feels he wouldn’t be a part of Mikel Arteta’s cast.

Asked if he would take Bale to Arsenal, Wilshere told talkSPORT: ‘No.

‘I look at the players who would be playing in that position and they are young players who have undoubtedly been Arsenal’s best players in recent years.

‘So um, I don’t think he wins a game. And if he does, I think he would be holding one of those players.’

When asked whether a move to Cardiff City was realistic, Bale said last week: “I really can’t say.

“I didn’t really think much about it. I really don’t know if the pattern makes much of a difference.

‘A football game is a football game. I feel like I will never really lose my quality with the ball. I think it’s a conversation to have.

“I need to make sure I’m playing and I’m as fit as possible, it’s going to be extremely important.

“Coming to this camp just now, I wasn’t in shape. I didn’t have much game time. Sometimes I manage to get rid of it. Ideally, I want to go to a World Cup playing and be able to be as fit as I can.’
