Arsenal attacker Theo Walcott who was in the Southampton youth team until he graduated to the senior team in the 2005/2006 season may return to the club. Walcott joined Arsenal from Southampton at the age of 16.
His contract will lapse by next season. There are reports that Chelsea, Manchester United and Liverpool are interested in the attacker. It is speculated that Southampton may be looking to be joined by their former youth sensation as they are working to improve their attacking force.
In the last few years since joining Arsenal, he has struggle and his performance has been marred by injuries and underperformance. It is reported that Arsene Wenger is not keen on renewing his contract and Walcott is also looking to move to a new club this summer. There is also the report that Arsenal is ready to hand Walcott a new 100,000 pounds a week deal. Walcott has made a total of 294 appearances for Arsenal sscoring 72 goals in the process.
Although the Man-U, Chelsea and Liverpool may be looking to strengthen their attack, Walcott is not in the class of Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney, Liverpool’s Daniel Sturridge and Chelsea’s Diego Costa.
Since Southampton recorded profit this session, it is in a position to engage their former youth star. Although Southampton is also looking in the direction of Javier Hernandez to strengthen their attack, they may have an emotional attachment to Walcott. With the defence that Southampton now have, it will be able to finish in the European qualification places if they strengthen their attack with either Walcott or Hernandez.
