Theo Walcott wants to stay at Arsenal


Theo Walcott is giving himself one more year to force his way back into Arsenal’s first team, according to the Telegraph.

The England international – who was snubbed from Roy Hodgson’s Euro 2016 squad – could turn down a move to Liverpool in order to prove himself at the Emirates.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp wants to add more pace to his attack, so Walcott would be an obvious choice.

However, that interest is not reciprocated, as Walcott believes his time in north London is not yet over.


The 27-year-old could be waiting to see who Arsenal sign, as if the Gunners go ahead with their bids for Leicester duo Jamie Vardy and potentially Riyad Mahrez, then there will almost certainly be no place for Walcott.

Yet, if those moves fall through, then there is always a chance Arsene Wenger will give him another chance.

Walcott has struggled to live up to his potential since signing from Southampton as a teenager, but with the added motivation of knowing his Arsenal career could be on the line, it will be interesting to see how he fares next season if he does stay.
