Reports say that Jack Wilshere is set to miss out on a place at the 2018 World Cup

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has failed to make Gareth Southgate's 23-man squad for the 2018 World Cup.

Reports say that Wilshere, 26, will not be involved at the tournament next month, with Manchester City utility man Fabian Delph set to feature instead.

Delph has not played for England under Southgate and the last of his nine appearances for the Three Lions came against Spain back in November 2015.

England boss Southgate will name his final group of players for Russia on Wednesday.

28-year-old Delph has played 29 times for City this season having faced a small injury setback. He has primarily operated at left-back but has plenty of experience playing in central midfield.

On a potential inclusion for Delph, City boss Pep Guardiola said recently: "maybe it would be a risk if England don't take him to the World Cup.

  • Eric Dier - 1/50
  • Jordan Henderson - 1/50
  • Fabian Delph - 1/10

  • Jack Wilshere - 13/8

"Gareth Southgate was here, we spoke together about the English players in the team, he is delighted with all of them; John Stones, Kyle (Walker), all of them. Delph as well.

"I would like to see Fabian Delph at the World Cup, of course it depends on Gareth, because I think he deserves it. He is a player who can play in different positions, when he plays, we always play good.

"He helps us to play good football, to be better, to give an extra pass. And he has a good heart, he is a fantastic person.'

"He is an exceptional player. Our dream for next season would be for him to be regularly more fit than he was in the last two seasons, especially last season. But we are going to try and work on that."
