Southampton: Theo Walcott eyeing summer move to MLS

Southampton: Theo Walcott eyeing summer move to MLS -Premier League News

Southampton forward Theo Walcott is reportedly considering a St. Mary’s exit this summer after it’s been claimed that he is keen on a move to the MLS.

The Lowdown: Walcott profiled

The 33-year-old veteran first joined the Saints on loan from fellow Premier League rivals Everton for the 2020/21 season, but following a successful spell, put pen to paper on a permanent contract with the south coast outfit last summer.

The academy graduate has made 58 senior appearances for the club if you include his initial stint in the mid 2000’s, and despite still having one year remaining on his current deal, it looks as though the former Arsenal man might be heading for the exit door earlier than expected after a new update emerged.

The Latest: Saints ready to sanction exit

In a new article published by The Sun, it’s claimed that Walcott is ‘eyeing a switch’ to Stateside, and is ‘open’ to a move if any potential suitors are out there, with New York and Los Angeles believed to be among his ‘favoured destinations’.

The source additionally states that Ralph Hasenhuttl is ‘happy to let him go’ at the end of the season, and would prefer to ‘further invest’ in youth during the upcoming transfer window instead.

The Verdict: Raising transfer funds

It comes as no surprise to discover that Walcott will be looking for a move elsewhere over the coming months, especially considering his lack of game time, given the fact that he’s not been involved in any of Southampton’s last 14 outings.

The long-term top-flight servant, who was once dubbed a “massive” player by his ex-Gunners teammate Jack Wilshere, is also the Saints’ highest earner on the wage books, so it’s no wonder that they are trying to move him on in the summer.

The potential sale of Walcott could raise some much-needed transfer funds so that the Austrian boss can go into the market looking for new additions to bolster his ranks ahead of the start of next season.
