Walcott has yet to sign a new deal at Arsenal, with reports claiming talks between the player and club have stalled, and as a result the 23-year-old could be sold before Friday’s deadline day.
But while some Arsenal fans are desperate to see him stay, Robson believes Arsene Wenger should just sell the former Southampton forward.
He recently told talkSPORT:
‘If you’re spending £75,000 a week on a player then you need him to be consistent, he needs to be one of your main players. I’m not sure Theo Walcott is that player.
‘He’s been too inconsistent during his time at Arsenal. Is he getting better? Is he going to be a top class player? I’m not so sure.
‘He’s at his best when the game is stretched and he can come on as an impact player, but you can’t pay an impact player £75,000 a week.’
‘Arsenal could get a bit of money for him now. I don’t think Walcott will be missed if he leaves.’
‘If I was the manager or on the board, I’d be looking to sell him anyway because I don’t think he’s improved during the time he’s been at Arsenal.’
I can’t believe I’m going to say this but I actually agree with Robson on this one.
Walcott won’t be missed if he leaves this summer, and Wenger would be better off selling the player rather than grant him wages that he’s not even worthy of.
I for one won’t be upset if Theo does decide to head out of the exit door this Friday!
