Theo Next Out The Door?

Theo Next Out The Door?

Reports are emerging (none of which are verified at this point, I ought to add) that Theo Walcott will be put on the market by Arsenal as the England wide man has allegedly turned down a contract offer from the club. Walcott's representatives have been negotiating, stalling and renegotiating with Arsenal all summer with 1 year left on his current deal.

But The Times is reporting that he has turned down a contract offer. Curiously, this story has come into the public domain hours after Manchester City's attempt to buy Scott Sinclair has fallen through. If Walcott is still with Arsenal come Saturday with no new deal signed, the club could lose him on a free transfer next summer.

Perhaps ominously, Wenger told the press on Saturday, 'Negotiations are ongoing with Walcott and we want to try and sort it out one way or the other before the transfer window shuts,'

One way or the other being the key phrase you'd imagine. Watch this space. It looks pretty clear that by Friday night he'll have signed a contract. Just a question of who with.

Couldnt care less. The only thing that makes Theo valuable is the fact that he is English and homegrown. Yep he scored 12 goals but he is soo replaceable. If Theo thinks he can get a better deal in terms of playing time and pay wise than at Arsenal he is seriously delusional. I wouldnt have cared less about Theo had we kept hold of either Song or RvP. And its pretty pathetic if Arsenal are held to ransom by someone as frustratingly poor as Theo Walcott.

Theo hasnt really improved to be offered a big buck contract yet. And the club has seen how difficult it is to move on average players on a big contract. Now we are going to feel the pinch of selling RvP. If he had kept him, we could have kissed Theo goodbye.

If he was the only player to go this summer I'd forget his name before he got to the car park. The issues are a) for the 2nd summer in a row we'd have lost three guaranteed starting XI players and b) why the hell is this rumbling on 72 hours before the window closes?

If Theo won't sign, then he absolutely has to be sold before the window closes. It is such a shame that we lose 2 key players and one of our hopefuls, as Theo it is always hoped that Theo would go on to a flyer each passing season. His year cannot be too far off and that's why this is such a shame. Not depressing but still, a shame. We can do better than Theo, tbh, much as I like him as a person and Arsenal player.

Walcott is lightening quick. He always was. It was the bit with the ball he couldn't master.

I was suspicious of Theo's ever smiling face during the pre-season and his interview where he expressed the desire to stay, with his agent thrashing out things with the club and how talks may continue to the end of the year. He was playing this to be very close to transfer deadline day or to put himself in a position to leave on a free; about the only way he will be attractive to some clubs and get that wage packet. Loyalty is out the window these days, isn't it.

It also flies in the face of the whole 'British are more loyal' theory too. Although this could simply be a ploy to get more money out of the club by inviting offer - money he does not deserve IMO
