Arsenal are, wait for it, preparing a shock £10 million winter move for Liverpool flop , according to the Sunday Mirror.

If reports are to be believed, was interested in signing the England international as a replacement for before he signed for Liverpool in 2011. But it seems the Frenchman may go back in for the 28-year-old, who has fallen out-of-favour with , when the winter transfer window opens.

The Merseyside club may try to utilize Arsenal’s interest in Downing in order to land Walcott this January.

So would Downing be a good acquisition for Arsenal in January? Two words come to mind – hellllll no!

I truly hope this is nothing more than a rumour because if I see Downing arrive at The Emirates this winter then we are officially going backwards as a club.
