thumbnail Hello,

The Gunners star believes that the Croatian has done a good job at White Hart Lane but deserves the chance to test himself at the highest level with Chelsea interested

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has given his opinion on the current Luka Modric transfer saga by insisting the Croatian should quit Tottenham as he deserves to be playing in the Champions League.

The influential midfielder’s future at Spurs looks increasingly uncertain after he was quoted as saying he wants to leave the club in the wake of a £22 million bid from Chelsea.

Whilst Tottenham have rejected the bid and insisted their player is not for sale, they look set for a battle to retain his services and Wilshere feels he should be allowed to leave.

The Arsenal youngster Tweeted: "Don't see all the fuss about Modric wanting a move..he has done welll at #Spurs but he needs to play #champions league! #inmyopinion."

Modric has expressed a desire to join a club in the Champions League, admitting that he enjoyed playing in the competition for Spurs last season when Harry Redknapp’s men reached the quarter-final stage.

Having finished the season in fifth place, six points behind rivals Arsenal who took the final Champions League spot, there will be no European Cup football at White Hart Lane next season with the club heading for the Europa League instead.
