There’s some sensational news reaching us in the Football Transfer Tavern today as Mail Online report that Monaco are planning a massive £34 million offer for Arsenal winger Theo Walcott.
It’s certainly interesting reading for Gunners supporters sat in the tavern after they held a recent debate about the future of the 24-year-old.
Arsene Wenger’s side have made a blistering start to their Premier League campaign but mostly without the England star due to injuries and that has brought about undue speculation that he could be available for a possible transfer.
Monaco bosss Claudio Ranieri, whose summer signings included Radamel Falcao, Joao Moutinho and Geoffrey Kondogbia, appears to be looking to add some raw pace to his current side as his team lie second in Ligue 1, tied with Paris Saint-Germain.
Walcott last featured for Arsenal during their Champions League victory over Marseille back in September following an abdominal strain and it will be intriguing to see where he fits in Wenger’s team when he returns.
He will certainly be seeking regular football as he tries to secure a permanent place in Roy Hodgson’s World Cup squad – something he may struggle to gain at the Emirates Stadium, although this would appear unlikely.
However the same reports claim that Wenger will not want to lose Walcott but as we have seen before, every player has his price and the £34 million possible offer from France could be tempting for all parties.
Should Arsenal even consider selling the former Southampton man? Let us know your thoughts below.
