ARSENAL outcast Theo Walcott has offered himself to AC Milan, according to reports in Italy.

Theo Walcott has fallen out of favour at Arsenal and is yet to start a single Premier League game this season.

Arsene Wenger claimed last month he expects the 28-year-old to put himself back in contention and ruled out selling him in January.

However, it seems the former Southampton man does not share Wenger’s ambition as he has reportedly been looking for a move.

And Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport claim he has set his sights on a switch to Serie A giants AC Milan.

The report says Walcott’s representatives have been in contact with the San Siro club and are awaiting their response.

He is said to be desperate for game time in an attempt to salvage his chances of making England’s World Cup squad for the summer.

And he will consider a loan switch, providing there is an agreement in place to discuss his permanent future at the end of the season.

If Milan fail to take him up on his offer, understands there are a number of clubs in the Premier League showing interest.

West Ham, Southampton, Newcastle and Everton are all keen on reaching an agreement for Walcott who has just one year left to run on his £120,000-a-week contract.

But they must first convince Wenger to part company with the winger after he claimed last month he would not sell in January.

“He works hard to come back… in training he looks sharp and he will show that,” he said.

And when asked if he would keep Walcott in January, Wenger added: “Yes”.
