Theo Walcott is reportedly set to be sold by Arsenal in the January transfer window, putting an end to an eleven-year association with the club (via The Express).
Theo Walcott has been at Arsenal for a very long time. The winger joined from Southampton back in January 2006.
After arriving at the club as a 16-year-old, Walcott failed to make an appearance for the Gunners for some time but was controversially called up to England’s 2006 World Cup squad.
The winger eventually did find a place in the Arsenal squad and has made a total of 388 appearances for the Gunners, more than the likes of Thierry Henry and Steve Bould.
However, the 28-year-old has found himself out of the team of late, making just three substitute appearances in the Premier League this season.

Now, Walcott is reportedly set to leave the club in the January transfer window with Everton, Southampton and West Ham all keen on his signing.
Walcott has been a good servant for the club and has certainly had his moments on the pitch. However, the winger is a little too inconsistent to play for a club like Arsenal and has only surpassed ten Premier League goals just twice in eleven years.
