Wilshere is enjoying playing alongside Cazorla.
Asked if Arsenal's players had a nickname for their new talisman, Wilshere said: "Not yet. Maybe it should be Messi!"
Record signing Cazorla was dubbed 'Paquirrin' (Fat Boy) in his native Spain because of his resemblance to a celebrity who goes by the same moniker.
When this was pointed out to Wilshere, he said: "Maradona then."
