Saints enter race for Irons target

WalcottWest Ham are set to be rivalled by Southampton in a January chase for Theo Walcott in January.

The Irons have the Gunners and England star very much in their sights after inquiries in the summer window but his former club are keen to stage a reunion with the 28 year old.

With just 18 months left on his current deal, Walcott could be available for around £12 – £15 million in January and Arsenal are hesitating on offering him a new deal.

He  has failed to make the Arsenal Premier League team this season having had to settle instead for Europa and League Cup action.

And it now seems inevitable that he will be leaving north London with a move to either the London Stadium or St Mary’s looking likely to be one of two likely destinations.

The Hammers admitted having an interest in the former England man during the summer and are keeping tabs on his situation.
