Much has been made recently of the future of Theo Walcott, who was once considered as nothing more than a fringe player at Arsenal. Now, the 23-year-old England international could be heading towards the exit door after stalling over contract talks, and the former Southampton forward is allowed to talk to other clubs in January.
Based on Walcott's recent form, it seems ludicrous to think it's got to this point where he can leave on a free transfer. 14 goals in 20 games in all competitions says it all; it's more than Lukas Podolski, it's more than Olivier Giroud. Okay, it may not be more than Robin van Persie had at this stage last season, but it's clear to see that Walcott is a natural center forward.
Here, we look at the latest rumors regarding Walcott's future, and with all the latest news brought to you here, you'll need to keep up to date if you're a Gunners fan. Because the reality is that Theo Walcott could leave this January. So be prepared by following our daily updated article.
