Three reasons West Ham should steer clear of signing Theo Walcott

According to Gambling Times football inside Graeme Bailey, West Ham United are one of three Premier League clubs interested in signing out-of-favour Arsenal attacker Theo Walcott during the January transfer window.

The Gambling Times says that the 28-year-old has been told that he could be sold in the New Year unless he proves that he still has a long-term future with the north London outfit over the course of the next three months, with the Irons, Southampton and Everton all said to be keen on the winger.

While the report adds that Walcott believes he can prove to Arsene Wenger that he can still play a big part in his manager’s plans going forward, he will also be considering moving on as he looks to reclaim his spot in the England squad ahead of next summer’s World Cup in Russia.

Meanwhile, Hammers boss Slaven Bilic is under huge pressure following a disappointing start to the campaign and while he may already be looking at players to strengthen his squad in 2018, the Arsenal forward is not what his side need right now.
