Arsenal forward Theo Walcott could be on his way out with four Premier League clubs interested in him.
Theo Walcott has been at Arsenal for 11 years since joining as a 16-year-old from Southampton but it looks like his time in North London is coming to an end, according to the Mirror. With it being a World Cup year, Walcott wants regular game time which he is not guaranteed at Arsenal.
Former club Southampton are interested as they are currently struggling to score goals. Everton, West Ham and Watford are the other teams to have enquired about Walcott. Everton didn’t buy a striker following Romelu Lukaku’s summer departure and although Walcott would not be an exact replacement, he should be able to provide them with at least 10 goals a season.
Walcott has made just four Premier League appearances for the Gunners this season, all of which have come from the bench. The majority of his game time comes from playing in Europa League and Carabao Cup matches for what is effectively Arsenal’s B team.
It is uncertain whether Walcott would go on loan or leave completely but if he wants regular game time, he will have to move elsewhere to get it. Although Walcott has not fulfilled his potential at Arsenal, a move away could be just what he needs at this stage in his career.
