AC Milan are considering a loan offer for Arsenal winger Theo Walcott, according to Il Posticipo.
The Italian website is reporting that the Rossoneri see the 28 year old as a low cost reinforcement in the January transfer window. The Italian club’s €200m outlay on new players last summer means the club will struggle to stay within UEFA’s Financial Fair Play rules but their poor start to the domestic season means they are seeking to strengthen their squad.
Il Posticipo reports that Walcott would be a perfect fit for Milan’s 4-3-3 formation, and he could offer the Serie A side pace in wide areas that they have been desperately lacking.
The England international remains one of the fastest players at Arsenal, and Milan would see him as an ideal solution to their problems, even if the winger’s tactical discipline may not be quite up to Italian football standards.
Milan may look to offer a straight loan, or a loan with an obligation to buy; either way the Gunners could be keen to get the majority of Walcott’s £140,000 a week wages off the books, with the player having failed to start a Premier League game this season.
