Arsenal star Theo Walcott has told his close friends that he wants to continue fighting for a regular role despite his limited playing time, Daily Star reports.
The 27-year-old has struggled for consistent playing time under manager Arsene Wenger this season, a factor that has linked him with a potential summer exit.
West Ham United have emerged as a possible destination for the forward, with the club believed to be considering a £20million move for his services.
The Hammers are looking at a host of summer targets as they aim to enter the top four race after a successful campaign this year.
However, Walcott is keen to continue his career at the Emirates as he looks to rediscover his form after he was left out of Roy Hodgson’s provisional England squad ahead of EURO 2016.
He only managed to start 15 Premier League matches this term, featuring another 13 times from the bench, scoring five goals while providing another two assists.
