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.
Walcott has been enjoying regular appearances in the Europa League and the Carabao Cup, but with the 28 year-old coming into his prime, you would expect he should be looking to play much more regularly.
Ian Wright has now claimed that he thinks that the England international should move on in order to continue his career.
“I think so, for his own sake,” Wright said when asked if Walcott should be looking at a transfer from the Emirates.
“I’m not sure where he can go now with Arsenal and he’s only playing in the Carabao Cup and the Europa League.
“He’ll want to finish on a high in respect of what he’s doing, he’s given Arsenal great service in the time he’s been there and for me he should move on for himself.”
Former England international Darren Bent also agreed, claiming he could find a new lease of life in new surroundings.
Bent added: “The freshness of a move somewhere else might be perfect for him. He’s been there for a long, long time now and I’m not quite sure how much more he can improve while he’s there.
“But you never know, sometimes you can go somewhere else with new surroundings and, all of a sudden, you can kick on again. Maybe that’s what he needs.”
Walcott is our longest-standing player, but his place in the squad is very limited at present, and now may be the best time for him to make way and allow some of the younger players to take over his role.
Could Walcott improve with a move elsewhere? Is the forward done with Arsenal?
