Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is hoping to sell his English international striker Theo Walcott at any price, as many clubs are interested in signing the English forward in January transfer windows.
According to some reports and the newspapers, The Sun, Arsenal had set at least £ 30 million to let their 28-year-old Englishman leave this winter, which is a number that seems a bit high compared to the recent form of Theo Walcott.
Several Premier League clubs have shown their interest in the English forward such as Southampton FC, Theo Walcott’s former club, Everton FC, and West Ham United. In addition to other foreign clubs such as AC Milan from Italy.
Southampton FC, The Saints, is the most interested in signing the Arsenal striker, but the £ 140,000 weekly salary is the biggest obstacle to Theo Walcott joining his former club. However, Theo Walcott may agree to decrease his demanded salary in order to convince England’s manager, Gareth Southgate, to include him in England’s squad that will play in the world cup this summer.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said on Friday that he wanted to keep the player for the rest of the season, despite interest from other clubs, but the coming few days will confirm whether Theo Walcott will stay or leave.
