Is Walcott part of the summer clearout?

The Premier League has around 1 month left before the last match is played and the new champion of England is announced.

Arsenal had a bright start in the season but lost their pace in the 2nd half of the campaign as they dropped points at a consistent level and now the league title seems to be once again out of the reach of Arsene Wenger.

The last time that Arsenal won the Premier League was during the 2003-04 season and ever since then they have been snatching the top spots of the English league but just couldn’t manage to lift the title once again and this season is no different however, it’s believed that Arsene Wenger is planning to have a major summer overhaul with a big amount of players leaving the Emirates Stadium during the approaching summer transfer window.

It’s rumored that Wenger wants to do major changes in order to finally win the coveted Premier League title and these changes will begin by offloading a few of his players and one of them is Theo Walcott. Walcott is 3/1 to still be at Arsenal come the start of the season according to the best betting apps, with Liverpool the favourites to land him if he does move.

West Ham United is believed to be interested in signing Theo Walcott as well as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and if Arsene Wenger is indeed creating a huge change within his squad then there is a big possibility of Walcott leaving the Emirates Stadium in the summer transfer window and taking into consideration the fact that Theo Walcott has been dropped to the sidelines, his influence in the team has significantly dropped.

Just by taking a look at the last few Premier League games of Arsenal, it’s evident how much Walcott has fallen down in the ranks of Arsene Wenger. When Arsenal played against Watford on April 2nd, Walcott entered the pitch at the 73rd minute and when facing off with West Ham United, the English player only had 10 minutes of playing time.

It’s clear that Walcott is not playing a very important role in the team of Arsene Wenger and this might be a sign for things to come.
