There are not many players in the world of football who divide opinions among football fans more than Theo Walcott. Most Arsenal fans are fed up and it appears Wenger himself is actively considering bringing in someone who will replace the England international on Arsenal’s wing. And if reports from the Spanish press today is anything to go by, then Arsenal are now set to replace Theo Walcott.
According to reports, Arsenal and Barca are in advanced discussion for the signing of Arda Turan. The former Atletico Madrid star has always been linked with moves to Arsenal and with Barca needing to sell before they can buy, Arsenal all of sudden have a massive chance of signing the Turkish international.
Reports claim Barca are open to accepting a bid of €29 million for the player and although Liverpool, Dortmund and Leicester City are said to be interested in him, Arsenal is however said to be the clear favorites for the signature of the Turkey international. Personal terms have been agreed with the player. Only thing left is for Arsenal to make Barca an acceptable offer and for the player to undergo and pass a medical with the Gunners.
The report if true, it means there is a real chance that Walcott will leave the club this summer or find himself warming Arsenal’s bench next season.
