Wilshere joined Bournemouth on a season-long loan on Deadline Day in a bid to gain more playing time
Wilshere made his Cherries debut against West Brom on Saturday as he came on in the 63rd minute to help his side grab a 1-0 win.
“Jack’s a massive name and I think a lot of people did not expect him to come here,” he told Sky Sports News HQ.
“He’s given the lads a bit of a lift and he’s come on Saturday and performed well, so I’m sure if he starts on Saturday he’s going to help us get a good result.”
“It’s nice to show that we can attract big names,” he added.
“He’s played for a massive club like Arsenal and there’s great players there. All the lads know the quality that Jack has got and he can only improve us.”
