While the Arsenal fans are still dancing in delirious delight over the prospect of signing Jamie Vardy this summer, a few of the more cynical ones have been brought crashing back down to earth.
Theo Walcott is far from the most popular man in North London these days, with many seeing this summer as the end of his Gunners career, after a largely frustrating decade in North London.
He has been linked with a move to West Ham United after losing his starting place for both club and country, ultimately missing out on Euro 2016.
However, according to ESPN, the former Southampton prodigy is ready to stay at the Emirates Stadium this summer DESPITE the strong interest in Vardy.
The 27-year old is understood to want to stay and fight for his place at the club even as a move for the Leicester City marksman edges ever closer.
With Olivier Giroud also in the squad, Arsene Wenger could soon have quite the selection headache on his hands.
Would Walcott’s career be best served by leaving Arsenal this summer?
