Arsenal’s pre-season tour kicked off on a very good note but not without verbal lashing of the Gunners longest serving player Theo Walcott.
The 27-year-old English winger Theo Walcott has now been with Arsenal for over a decade. Yet, he has failed to consistently make any significant contribution to the first team — particularly over the course of the past season.
His performance for Arsenal against MLS all stars provoked a lot of Arsenal fans to the point that some are already calling for his sale. As twitted by Eric Harris on twitter.
I think, he can be used as a bait for the Riyad Mahrez deal. Walcott plus the cash might see Claudio Raniery release his most priced asset without any hesitation.
At this point in his career, he may not improve beyond what we have so far seen and with the competition for places, Walcott will definitely be a fringe player at Arsenal despite his experience.
