Chelsea Transfer Rumours: Blues Set to Make Shock Offer for Theo Walcott?
Chelsea have been linked to a number of talented midfielders throughout the summer but still haven't landed the talent they want.
Arsenal has a number of teams coming after their top players and this summer could turn into a genuine problem for the North London club when all is said and done.
Gael Clichy wasn't expected to return, but the efforts for captain Cesc Fabregas and winger Samir Nasri are starting to take their toll on Gunners' boss Arsene Wenger.
Europe's best team, Barcelona, has been chasing Fabregas for a couple of years and the 24-year old has mutual interest in returning to the club he grew up with.
As for Nasri, he's on the radar for a number of teams with Manchester United reportedly at the front of the line.
And now players on the back end still at the Emirates could be looking for an out as well. According to The Daily Mail, Chelsea are prepared to make an offer for Arsenal winger/forward Theo Walcott:
Chelsea are about to add further misery to Arsenal's summer by launching a bid for Theo Walcott ... The winger, who has an uneasy relationship with Wenger mainly because he feels he has not been given the first-team opportunities the new year and paid the price in the final sprint.
The 22-year old was a teenage star when he was brought over from Southampton but hasn't gotten the opportunities he's wanted since coming over. He and Wenger haven't always been on track with one another either and it certainly isn't shocking to hear another club calling about his services.
In 114 appearances he's scored only 18 goals and hasn't been the dynamic playmaker the Gunners wanted.
Chelsea has been linked to Romelu Lukaka, Wesley Sneijder and Luka Modric so far this summer but haven't landed any of them.
Walcott's loss could be one of four major moves for the Gunners this summer and there is no telling what will come of this club.
If Chelsea is to land Walcott it would be a huge hit to the Wenger's club.
