We are less than a month away from the winter transfer window, and there are some interesting players linked with an Arsenal move.
Ian Wright and Darren Bent have both claimed that Theo Walcott should leave Arsenal Football Club.
The forward has fallen down the pecking order in recent years, and has been limited to only three substitute outings in the Premier League so far this term.
Theo Walcott has sung the praises of Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere after his midweek display against Red Star Belgrade, but do the club need him more than they know?
Theo Walcott and Calum Chambers both had to be taken off against Doncaster Rovers last night, but the Arsenal boss doesn’t expect either to be out for long.
The Gunners limped to a 1-0 win over League One strugglers thanks to a Walcott goal, but the goalscorer was not able to finish the match.
Journalist Emanuele Giulianelli has claimed that Arsenal could be set to win the race to sign Virgil Van Dijk from Southampton, due to their interest in Theo Walcott.
Paul Merson has claimed that Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud should be unhappy with their lack of playing time at Arsenal.
The duo both began Friday’s 4-3 win over Leicester City on the bench, and came on to help turn over the 3-2 deficit. Giroud even bagged himself the winning goal in the 85th minute to show his worth to the Gunners, but he will remain as the club’s second choice behind Alexandre Lacazette, who opened the scoring.
Arsenal have already moved to bring in Alexandre Lacazette this summer, but are supposedly eyeing an attacking player who can play off the striker.
Alexis Sanchez is heavily expected to leave the club in the coming weeks, with Paris Saint-Germain looking his most likely destination at present. His exit will leave us shy of top attacking options, and a replacement is being lined up at present.
The Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has stated that he will be looking to continue his side’s progress in the new 3-4-2-1 system next season, after an impressive end to the campaign,
The new system accommodates three centre-backs, two wing-backs, but only two advanced midfield players and one striker. This limits the amount of advanced players needed in the squad, whilst also changing the type of player needed.
