Arsenal star closing in on £20m West Ham switch

Arsenal star Theo Walcott is edging closer to a possible summer move to West Ham United, according to reports from The Sun.

The 27-year-old has struggled to hold down a regular role under manager Arsene Wenger this season following his return from injury.

He has not started a Premier League match since February when his side suffered a 3-2 defeat to rivals Manchester United.

Given his current situation at the Emirates, Walcott could also miss out on the chance to represent England at the upcoming European competition this summer.

Hammers boss Slaven Bilic is now considering a potential £20million offer to reinforce his ranks heading into the upcoming campaign.

Aside from West Ham, the winger has also been mooted as a target for Chelsea, but Bilic’s side have now emerged as favourites for his signature.

He only started 15 Premier League matches this term, featuring another 13 times from the bench, so far scoring five goals while providing another 13 assists.
