Theo Walcott could still leave Arsenal

01 November 2012 09:18

Theo Walcott has sparked interest from Liverpool lately but is reportedly 'fed up' that Arsene Wenger will not play him as a centre forward – despite his hatrick in the League Cup.

The Telegraph are reporting that Liverpool will take advantage of contract stalls at Arsenal with a bid in January for the England forward – or even offer a pre-contract agreement to ward off interest from Manchester City.

Walcott is desperate to play as a centre forward – and with Liverpool severely lacking in goals this season it seems a perfect fit. Along with the fact that Theo Walcott himself is a life long Liverpool fan.

A forward with blistering pace and an eye for goal – similar to Michael Owen, Walcott would inject a sense of pace into the side which will contemplate the creativity of Suarez, Gerrard and Sahin to great effect.

Theo Walcott is currently on £60,000 a week at Arsenal – and is looking for an increase to £100,000 a week along with a role down the centre of Arsenal's three man attack.

Arsenal will listen to offers of £11million for Walcott – but are mindful of how is sale will look to apposing teams and fans. Having lost Cesc Fabregas, Samir Nasri and Robin van Persie recently – the sale of Walcott may have a negative impact on the teams morale.

However, if Arsenal can get up to £10million minimum for a player who has had six mixed years at Arsenal and in the final year of his contract – it may be seen as a good bit of business from the Arsenal board.
