Arsenal legend Theo Walcott on verge of signing for Premier League rivals in £20m transfer

theo walcott injury update

Arsenal has been strength in attack this season and all their forwards are being questioned. Theo Walcott has perhaps been the most criticized after a very subpar season. Walcott has been playing for The Gunners for a decade now despite being 27-years-old. However, his days in The Emirates Stadium seem to be coming to a swift end.

It’s no secret that Walcott has been aching for some regular first-team action, and it’s not like he doesn’t deserve it. Although he has been inconsistent for the last few seasons, Arsene Wenger has never given him a chance to play a set position.

He has played both wings and has even been used as a center striker, but he has failed to produce good results and has seen his playing time cut down. It all indicates that Walcott is heading out, the big surprise is who he wants to play for next.

Walcott has attracted big teams like Chelsea and Manchester City, but he seems to be keen to join local rival West Ham United. You may be asking yourself, Why The Hammers and not one of the big clubs?

Because West Ham seem to be determined to finish in the top four next year and are more likely to give him a chance of playing a major role in their potential success.
The Gunners are willing to sell the English international for £20 million and West Ham’s manager Slaven Bilic is definitely keen to pay up and have the winger playing on his side next season.
