Theo Walcott: Reveals Arsenal weakness

West Ham United are considering a move for Arsenal outcast Theo Walcott, according to the Daily Mirror.

They report that the Hammers have made the England international a £25million ­target this summer as the winger has fallen out of favour at the Emirates.

The 28-year-old has also lost his place in the England squad under Gareth Southgate, but according to the report he dreams of ­making the squad for the World Cup next summer.

Walcott struggled for game time at Arsenal when Arsene Wenger adopted the 3-5-2 system, and with the Gunners reportedly eyeing a host of new forwards, his time in North London may be up.

For the Hammers, Manuel Lanzini is set for a bumper new deal that would “bring him in line with West Ham’s top earners”.

This comes after reports that Ross Barkley could leave Everton this summer in order to “save his England career”.

The Sun claim that Barkley is now behind new signing Davy Klaassen in the pecking order and will not be Ronald Koeman’s main attacking midfielder next season.
