AC Milan in contact with Arsenal over shock summer deal for midfielder

Walcott

The Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern don’t know whether to be shocked or delighted following reports from Italy that Theo Walcott has emerged as a shock target for AC Milan this summer.

The England international has lost his place in the side after failing to consistently string together any sort of momentum for much of his decade in North London.

Hailed as huge talent when he arrived from Southampton as a youngster, the tide appears to be turning on the 27-year old following the emergence of Alex Iwobi and the loss of his place in the England setup.

While the Emirates giants are thought to have contacted the Rossonieri in regards to promising young midfielder Manuel Locatelli, the San Siro giants are understood to have tentatively aired the notion of signing Walcott.

Their fall from grace in Serie A has been well documented and they reportedly view the speedster as a decent replacement for Jeremy Menez, who is expected to leave in the summer.

Calciomercatoweb.it stress the deal is in its infancy, though the Gunners are thought to be open to the prospect of selling him after yet another failed title challenge.

Would a move abroad be the best thing for Arsenal, Walcott and even England?
