After signing Granit Xhaka, it appears Arsenal are not ready to relent and are working hard to bring in more quality players to the team. But aside those coming in, the club is also working on the outgoing front as well. To this end, it appears Theo Walcott is set to leave the club this summer.
There are certainly not many footballers in the current world football that divides opinion as much as Arsenal and England international attacker Theo Walcott does. Ask Arsenal fans and many will tell you they will like to see the club sell the English attacker this summer. And if you believe football insider, the wishes of the Arsenal fans is set to be met.
According to football insider, Arsenal and Liverpool are in talks for the transfer of the player. Liverpool are said to be ready to pay Arsenal as much as £25 million to sing the player. They will reportedly offer him £120,000 a week wage package in a bid to convince him to move to Anfield this summer. Walcott currently earns a reported £140, 000 a week at Arsenal which to be frank he doesn’t deserve.
With Arsenal looking increasingly like they will be signing either Mkhitaryan or Mahrez, Walcott will no longer be needed in the team and it will make perfect sense to sell him to Liverpool if truly they are ready to pay £25 million for him.
