Walcott set to be Arsenal’s first January transfer



English winger, Theo Walcott could be set for a potential January exit from the Emirates with Premier League clubs such as Southampton, West Ham and Everton all keen on signing the out of favor star.

The English international has found games hard to come by under Arsene Wenger this season having played majorly in cup games and he is yet to a Premier League game so far this term.

Although, despite starting in just nine games across all competitions for the Gunners so far this term, manager Arsene Wenger still insist the forward still remains in his plans but reports from English publication IBTimes understands the French tactician might be willing to listen to loan offers for the winger in the January transfer window.

However, the striker might be open to leaving the Emirates in the winter transfer window with reports from English outlet the Telegraph suggesting his boyhood club Southampton are favorites to sign him but he might have to lower his weekly wage of £120,000 (204.02 Ethereum) in other to secure a permanent move to the St. Mary’s Stadium this month.

The 28-year-old is the Gunners longest serving player having joined from English side, Southampton in the winter transfer window for a reported £12 million (2140.18 Ethereum) in 2006 but he has failed to live up to the hype surrounding his high-profile move to the Emirates having dubbed the next big thing out of England.

He is known for his blistering pace, finishing, dribbling, counter attacking threat and versatility.

A move back to his boyhood club Southampton might be too hard for him to refuse with guaranteed playing time and the world cup on the horizon, forcing his way into Gareth South gate plan will be the priority on his mind.
