Arsenal's Lansbury keen to follow Wilshere path

Arsenal youngster Henri Lansbury says he is keen to follow in the footsteps of Gunners teammate Jack Wilshere.

The 20-year old, who has enjoyed time on loan with Scunthorpe United, Watford and Norwich City in the last few seasons, says he is ready to push into the Arsenal first team just like 19-year old Wilshere did last term.

"I think Arsenal's the goal now," he told Press Association Sport.

"I have to go back and give it a go from there.

"It's a chance for me to show the boss that I'm capable of a first-team place and it's up to me to do it.

"Jack's taken his chance and he's done well," he added.

"He's a great player and I think it's a great bunch of lads here that can do the same thing."
