Wilshere, who will wear number 19, linked up with his West Ham team-mates at a pre-season training camp in Switzerland on Tuesday, with Pellegrini praising the 26-year-old's desire to play for the club he supported as a boy.

"It feels good, it feels special", Wilshere, whose father and brother are West Ham fans, said.

"Many people know that I've had a special bond with this Club growing up".

"I think I must have been about six or seven, my whole family were West Ham fans, I was a West Ham fan, still have a soft spot for them of course".

The club captain will likely cost the West Ham hierarchy a chunk more than their initial offer given his lengthy contract and central role at the club under manager Rafa Benitez.

The Hammers have already signed Jack Wilshere and Ryan Fredericks on free transfers this summer, plus spent £29m on Issa Diop and Lukasz Fabianski.

Wilshere was left looking for a new club after new Arsenal manager Unai Emery determined him to be surplus to requirements at The Emirates and told him to look for a new team.

Versatile attacker Felipe Anderson, meanwhile, has been a target of Manuel Pellegrini's since he took the West Ham job, and the deal finally appears to be gaining traction after previously reaching something of an impasse.

West Ham have applied for a work permit for Felipe Anderson as they prepare to smash their transfer record in a deal worth in region of £40million.

After spending the 2016-17 campaign on loan at fellow Premier League side Bournemouth, he returned to the Gunners and made 38 appearances last season but was not included in Gareth Southgate's England World Cup squad.
