West Ham could return for Walcott in January

Theo-Walcott-England-1093751Theo Walcott has just 18 months left on his current contract and Arsenal are yet to offer him a new deal.

The England International has struggled to nail down a starting spot at the Emirates this season with just three substitute appearances in the league this season, totalling 47 minutes.

But according to recent media reports, Arsenal are ready to cash in on him when the transfer window reopens in January. West Ham, Crystal Palace, Southampton and Everton are all said to be interested in offering him a new start.

The 28-year-old is said to be currently on £110,000 per week wages which the largest stumbling block for any would-be suitor. In over 11 years with Arsenal, Walcott has netted 107 goals and made 74 assists in 388 appearances in all competitions. He has 47 England caps to his name as well.

In the summer transfer window, our club insider confirmed Walcott was of interest to the Hammers saying “Yes he’s another option and very much on our list”

  1. Can’t see it happening. Priority has to be a good defensive midfielder.

  2. Exactly ibhammer cos thats where Bilic will play him!

  3. This is surely a joke. Another injury prone forward who can barely get a game, when fit, at Arsenal? I suppose it could be worse – Wilshere!
