Wilshere is confident the players he sees in the Academy will be breakout first team stars in the future.
He told the London Evening Standard: "There are players there who have been there as long as me and I think we are starting to build something special there with the likes of Emmanuel Frimpong and players I have seen in the youth teams coming through.
"In a couple of years, they'll be big players for us.
"Obviously I want to play in the Champions League and that is the aim for Arsenal and everyone at the Club.
"We started a bit slowly but we still feel we can finish in the top four."
