The England international only has one year left to run on his existing contract at The Emirates and is yet to pen a new deal, leaving many Arsenal fans (not me in particular) worried about losing the services of the former Southampton forward.
Walcott currently earns around £65,000-a-week and wants an improved deal to stay at Arsenal. However, it is believed that the club are considering the possibility of selling the Englishman this summer and may listen to offers of around £15 million rather than losing him on a potential free, should he of course not extend his stay.
Last season Walcott managed to bag eight goals and 11 assists for the Gunners, but still has his critics.
To be honest, I wouldn’t shed a tear if Walcott was sold to either Chelsea or PSG, but the latter would make more sense.
He’s been at the club for nearly seven years and hasn’t really stepped up to the plate, and at 23, he should be a world-beater by now, but he isn’t.
If a club, whoever it may be, table a £15 million bid for Walcott this summer then I would certainly consider it. Besides, we have Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain ready to step in!
