It’s understood that Arsenal have told the 25-year-old he is free to leave the Emirates after returning from his loan-spell at Bournemouth last season.
Wilshere has subsequently been linked to a number of clubs, with West Ham, Swansea and Sampdoria all registering interest in the player.
Antalyaspor are the latest club to join the list of potential suitors but the club admitted it will struggle to raise the requisite funds needed to land Wilshere.
“We made an enquiry and are in talks but Arsenal want a lot for Wilshere,” said Antalyaspor president Ali Safak Ozturk.
“It will be a difficult move to pull off.”
Sampdoria have reportedly offered £6m for Wilshere, with a further £1.5m in add-ons, though it’s claimed that Arsenal are holding out for closer to £20m.
