Manchester City have turned their attention to Arsenal's Jack Wilshere after a second bid to sign Raheem Sterling was turned down by Liverpool.
According to the BBC, the Citizens were ready to pay £40m to sign the Liverpool winger but the Reds are determined to keep the player at Anfield.
Wilshere, 23, was again hit by injuries last season but revealed last week that his desire is to continue at Arsenal.
"I wouldn't go somewhere just because I'm a home-grown player," Wilshere is quoted as saying by the BBC.
"I'd want to be wanted by a club; I want to be wanted by Arsenal.
"I've grown up at Arsenal. As long as Arsenal want me, I'm happy.
"When I was injured, I read a few people who said I should think about making changes to my approach.
"I thought 'maybe they are right. Maybe I should just change it a little bit'. But in my first game back, naturally I just want to pick the ball up and run with it.
"I can't change that. I can work on a few things maybe. If you look at the best dribblers in the world - Messi, Iniesta - when they are running with the ball it is always close to them so maybe I could work on that.
"But I definitely won't be changing my game."
