England and Arsenal youngster Jack Wilshere can only get better, according to his Gunners team-mate Marouane Chamakh.

The 18-year-old midfielder is set to feature for England Under-21s in Friday's European Championship play-off first leg against Romania at Carrow Road.

Wilshere, who won his first full international cap at the start of the season, has also been included in the senior squad for the Euro 2012 qualifier with Montenegro at Wembley next Tuesday, although Under-21s coach Stuart Pearce could yet retain him for their trip to Botosani.

Chamakh, who arrived at Arsenal on a free transfer from Bordeaux during the summer, believes Wilshere - fresh from a productive loan at Bolton last season - is the real deal. He has already featured in every Premier League game this season.

'I have been very impressed by Wilshere,' Chamakh said to 'Wilshere is a great player and I think he is only going to improve further.

'As well as being a great player he is adorable off the pitch.'
