Theo Walcott targeted by Premier League club


Theo Walcott could be offered a way out of Arsenal after another inconsistent season.

The attacker has lost his place in Gareth Southgate’s England squad and struggled to nail down a regular starting spot at the Emirates.

With the World Cup in Russia now just a year away, the 28-year-old will be conscious of the need to rectify that situation in the coming campaign.


The Mirror claim he is being targeted by West Ham, with the east Londoners hoping a £25million bid will be enough to convince the Gunners to sell.

Arsene Wenger’s decision may be dependent on whether he continues to operate with three at the back, a system he experimented with towards the end of the season. It was a formation that left little room for Walcott, though he still ended up with a tally of 19 goals in all competitions and was key to the FA Cup win.

As for West Ham, Slaven Bilic has had huge problems up front due to a combination of injuries and lack of investment. Andy Carroll and Andre Ayew have spent significant spells in the treatment room and the signings of Simone Zaza and Jonathan Calleri proved disappointing.
