Walcott's Agent Denies Juve Rumours

Walcott's Agent Denies Juve Rumours

With reports circulating in Italy that Juventus are interested in Theo Walcott, Colin Gordon has dismissed speculation that talks have already been had.

Apparently discussions are so far advanced within the Juve camp that they are preparing to sell Milos Krasic to Chelsea in order to generate the funds for a move for the winger.

Speculation continues that Juve have already been in touch with Walcott's representatives and were told a move would depend on how Arsenal's season pans out, and whether or not Juve make the Champions League.

However speaking to Talksport Walcott's agent has denied that any conversations have taken place.

'Juventus have never called us. We have not received calls from Italy recently.'

And on Walcott's long term future and whether he would be staying at the club, he said simply.

'We'll see. I don't know what will happen.'

Not even November yet!

Walcott, like most English players, doesn't strike me as the sort of person who could cut it moving abroad. I do think Theo will leave though, he's been harping on about playing through the middle and getting an attitude for a long time now.

Well, if he is going to repay the faith the Manager and fans have kept with him, all the these years, then I won't miss him, personally, if he chose to leave. He can go raise the blood pressure of another set of fans.

Hate to say this, but I dont know if we can afford a player who shows up 19 games a season.

I think we should reserve contempt directed at our players until something solid has come out. That being something from Arsenal or the player himself, not agents or managers in Italy. Walott is now 22 and will be coming into his prime over the next five years, why do we wish to rid ourselves of another player with his best years still ahead of him? Yes he has stated that he would like to play CF, but most fans want that too, constantly talking about how ineffective he is as a winger regardless of his improving return. But Rocky I do think Theo would love playing in Italy, the time midfield get on the ball and the quality of play makers there together with the average pace of CBs would be ideal for him. I genuinely hope he doesn't view it like that though.

I'm not so sure about that No. 10 - Theo himself admitted his entire game is based on pace. The Italian game is more considered, calculated and precise, I'm not sure it would suit his style at all. He's definately best suited to the PL. I too think we should give Theo a shot upfront before his contract winds down. He could be the balls up there.

I think he'd need to play in a 442 but I think he could do it. His game is based on pace but that is his pace not the general pace the game is played at. I think he would be allowed to hover about the back line then use his pace over the first 10 yards to get on the end of loads of through balls, facing goal to make it easy to shoot. No more trying to beat people. I also think, if he played CF for us we would get loads more free kicks and pens.

Was Walcott included in the "Half" of your players that wanted out over the summer?

You'd need about 10 through balls a game to see him score, he's been awful this season, and when he's awful, he's fkin appalling.

Agree we should see more concrete evidence that he wants to leave before slating the lad. Must say I posted my comment above while in a sleepy daze and just shot from the hips :)

ATM Walcott should only be a squad player for Arsenal and England. He has not shown any football intellgence besides his pace. His crosses from the Marseille's match were going nowhere.
