Frustrated Arsenal star ponders summer exit with an offer from West Ham

Walcott uncertain over his Arsenal future

Theo Walcott is all set for a transfer away from the Emirates this summer if he fails to earn a spot in England’s Euro squad.

The Arsenal star is getting increasingly anxious over his lack of playing time and if he does not make Roy Hodgson’s team, he will seriously consider leaving.

And as it is believed, Hodgson will not select the 27-year-old for England’s squad, claims Bleacher Report.

Walcott has fallen behind 19-year-old winger Alex Iwobi in the pecking order over recent weeks and is believed to be growing seriously anxious about his future.

Arsenal are meanwhile interested in listening to any offers for the England international, who at present earns £140,000-per-week.

According to the latest report, West Ham have lodged a £26m bid for Theo Walcott.

The Upton Park club are ready for their move to the Olympic Stadium and are interested in strengthening their squad immensely, particularly with the prospect of Champions League football still a possibility.

Slaven Bilic’s charges have been impressive all season – including some notable wins against Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool – and will look to take advantage of their new-found respect amongst the elite to target a higher calibre of player.

Walcott, the former Southampton prodigy has been a valued member of the Arsenal set-up for a number of years but has yet to fully establish himself as an indispensable player.

The England international has, in the past, remarked that he prefers to play in a central striker role, but he has to play second fiddle to Olivier Giroud and Danny Welbeck at the Emirates.

Walcott has already amassed a credible 54 Premier League goals since moving to the Gunners and given his familiarity with the league would be good business the Hammers

Ironically, West Ham will face the Gunners on Saturday at Upton Park, three points off fourth-placed Manchester City – in the last Champions League spot – as the Premier League now enters the business end of the season.
