THEO WALCOTT SET TO LEAVE GUNNERS IN JANUARY AFTER 12 YEARS
ARSENAL are willing to sell Theo Walcott in January after ten-years at the club, it can be revealed.
The England Winger is not wanted by boss Arsene Wenger and is free to leave if a suitable offer comes in.
Premier League strugglers West Ham alongside his former team Southampton are both understood to be interested.
The 28-year-old has been a bit-part figure this season, making just ten appearances, mostly in cup competitions. Wenger is planning to raise funds for his transfer kitty by offloading a number of unwanted players at Arsenal over the next eight-months.
The Gunners expect to lose Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil next year, and will need to sign replacements.
A much Younger Walcott has been in Arsenal since he was 16. But has failed to reach his full potential.
Mathieu Debuchy, Carl Jenkinson and Calum Chambers could also all be sold or loaned out next month.
Walcott joined Arsenal as a 16-year-old for £12m from Southampton as one of England’s brightest talents.
He has gone on to have a low-key career at the Emirates, winning three FA Cup trophies.
The Three Lions ace has scored 65 goals in 267 Premier League appearances for the club.
Wenger has never hidden his love for Theo, more than once extending his contract at Arsenal , but reports have it the boss has grown frustrated at the players lack of versatility and unwillingness to improve on key aspects of his game.
