Theo Walcott could be leaving Arsenal in the January transfer window if the right offer comes in for him, according to The Sun.

Arsène Wenger does not see a future for the English winger in North London and has told Walcott he is free to leave if a suitable offer comes in for him. West Ham and Southampton are both reported to be interested in Theo, in a bid to try and reignite their respective seasons.

It has been 12 years since the Englishmen arrived at Arsenal as a 16 year old for a £12m fee from Southampton and touted to be the future of English football. Sadly, he never managed to realise his potential and will almost certainly miss the World Cup in Russia next summer. If Walcott is to make any late bid for the England World Cup squad, then he needs a January move.

Walcott has only made 10 appearances during the current campaign for the Gunners, mostly in the Europa League and the Carabao Cup, scoring 3 goals and recording 2 assists. He has only played 47 minutes in the Premier League – all as a substitute.

Mathieu Debuchy, Carl Jenkinson and Calum Chambers could also all be sold or loaned out next month to try and recoup funds to replace both Alexis Sánchez and Mesut Özil – both of whom are expected to leave during the summer.
