With Southampton underway in the Premier League in a drab 0-0 draw with Swansea, the Saints will be hoping to push on and add some further attacking talent to their ranks in the coming weeks.
The Saints will be hoping to add some top players to the ranks at St Mary’s, and new manager Mauricio Pellegrino will no doubt have his eye on one or two targets as the summer window draws to a close.
Our landlord thinks the club will still land some big players before the window shuts, and one player he thinks the club should look to make a move for is current Arsenal man and former Saint Theo Walcott.
The pacey forward has long been a regular in the Premier League but has often failed to cement a regular place in the Gunners squad, meaning he has often become frustrated with a lack of consistent opportunities under Arsene Wenger.
However, the chance to resurrect his career and become a big name back at St Mary’s could be the ideal opportunity for Walcott. He would get the chance to become one of the big players for the Saints, and it might well give him the chance to play regular football and shoot himself back into England contention for next years World Cup.
Walcott is a player who has always had bags of pace and potential, but he doesn’t quite seem to have hit the heights many expected of him. A move back ‘home’ could well be the ideal scenario for the pacey Arsenal man.
