According to the Independent, Wilshere expressed that it would be wrong for the Football Association to push for the naturalisation of Manchester United's teenager Adnan Januzaj, an option it has pursued in recent months with the player yet to choose for whom he will play international football.
He said that if someone lived in England for five years, it does not make him English.
Zanuzaj, 18, is of Albanian-Kosovan descent and was born in Brussels but has so far rejected the opportunity to play for Belgium at youth level, the report said.
He could play for any of the six former Yugoslavia nations, through his father's place of birth, and Turkey, through his mother, the report added.
It is thought that he wants to represent Kosovo, who are not yet recognised by FIFA, the report further said.
Roy Hodgson confirmed during his appearance on Match of the Day on Saturday that the FA had been looking at the possibility of bringing Januzaj into the England squad, according to the report.
The teenager joined United from Anderlecht at the age of 16 and could feasibly become eligible for England in 2016, the report mentioned.
