Reports have emerged that West Ham United are set to make a move to sign Arsenal forward Theo Walcott in January.
Walcott has been at Arsenal since he was 16 and has scored 107 goals in nearly 400 games for the club in all competitions, collecting 47 senior England caps along the way. However, with the arrival of Alexander Lacazette, Walcott has found himself sidelined at The Emirates, and has made just 3 Premier League appearances so far this season, all from the bench, with outings mainly confined to the Carabao Cup and the Europa League.
Manager Arsene Wenger has long been a fan of the 28-year old striker, but now it appears that he may be finally ready to let him go to The Hammers, who are desperate to increase their striking options as they look to climb their way up the table under new manager David Moyes.
Andy is an exiled English football fan living in Cyprus. He loves all sports but football is his abiding passion, and he still has dreams every now and then about scoring the winning goal in a Wembley Cup Final, even though his playing days are long gone. He follows most major leagues, across Europe at least, and has a favoured team in each. When he’s not watching, listening, reading or downloading podcasts about football, he spend his time worrying about his beloved Arsenal.
