Premier League champions Leicester City are eager to bring Arsenal attacker Theo Walcott to the King Power Stadium this summer.

The England international has endured a tough season in the Gunners shirt and this has led to claims that he could seek a fresh challenge elsewhere.

According to The Mail, Foxes boss Claudio Ranieri is said to have held initial talks with Arsene Wenger regarding a potential move for Walcott, who was left out of Roy Hodgson's squad for Euro 2016.

Despite the speculation, the player is eager to prove his worth at the Emirates and has no desire to join a league rival in the near future.

West Ham United have also been credited with interest for the former Southampton graduate.
