Theo Walcott not keen on permanent Arsenal exit

Theo Walcott news

Walcott eyeing loan move next month?

England international Theo Walcott has expressed his desire to leave Arsenal in January, but not on a permanent deal. The 28-year-old has fallen out-of-favour with the Gunners this term, and has accumulated less than 50 minutes of top-flight football.

According to Football.London, Walcott is keen to depart the north London club in the New Year, but he would rather prefer a temporary move, which could rekindle his World Cup prospects.

Everton, West Ham United and Southampton have all been credited with an interest in the experienced campaigner, but a loan move looks the best option owing to his hefty wages of £110,000-a-week.

The Gunners currently value at around £20m, and it is suggested that Walcott is keen to ply his trade for a top-six club, if he does decide to leave the Emirates for good in the summer.

Walcott is likely to make the substitutes' bench when the north London side face-off against West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League's final fixture of 2017.
