Wilshere, one of the brightest young talents in England, recently made his long awaited return to action from a year-long injury and has already impressed with several all-action displays for Arsenal.
Unfortunately for Wilshere, the Gunners have failed to fire in their past few games and are currently on a slump, managing to pick up only two wins out of six games in all competitions.
The prospect of the Gunners having to endure yet another trophyless season has sparked fears that their star players, including the likes of Wilshere and Cazorla, could leave the club in search of greener pastures during the summer.
However, Wilshere has moved to assure fans that his heart was wholly with the Gunners, a club he grew up with and has pledged his future to the club he regards as 'home'.
"I've been at this club 10 years and to come through the academy at Hale End and break into the first team is a great story," Wilshere was quoted as saying by the Daily Mail.
"It's a dream. To have my family 20 minutes from the training ground and an hour from the stadium is perfect for me.
"Cesc wanted to go home. Home for me is Arsenal. Cesc wanted to go back to his family and friends. My family and friends are 20 minutes away. It's perfect."
The England international also spoke of his dream to be a legend with the Gunners and revealed his ambition of achieving a cult status at the club like the one former captain Adams enjoys.
"I've played 39 games in the Premier League, which is nothing when you look at players like Tony Adams and how many appearances they made," Wilshere added.
"That's something I want to do."
The 20-year-old also refuted allegations that the struggling Gunners had lowered their expectations from consistently challenging for the title to being content with a top four finish in the league.
"Our ambition every year is to challenge for the Premier League title," Wilshere declared.
"If we didn't think we could do that, we would be under-achieving.
"People might say we're a long way off - and the table doesn't lie, we are a few points behind - but we know what we have to do.
"We know we can't afford to drop points. We know we need to be in the top four. We know we need to win a trophy and get in the Champions League again.
"We do it every year and there's no reason why we can't do it again."
Wilshere will be serving his one-match ban for a red card he picked up in Arsenal's 2-1 loss to Manchester United and will not feature for the Gunners when they take on Fulham at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday.
