Arsenal manager comments on England international, future in serious doubt

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has cast Theo Walcott’s future into doubt ahead of the summer transfer window, report ESPN.

The England international has seemingly lost his place in the starting lineup after failing to consistently hit top level.

Frustrations appear to have reached boiling amid another crumbling title challenge and young Alex Iwobi has been preferred in place of him.

With his place in Roy Hodgson’s Euro 2016 squad under threat, the ex-Southampton speedster has been linked with a move away after a decade in North London.

Hailed as a prodigy after emerging on the South Coast, many people believe he has failed to realise his full potential.

West Ham United have been touted as a potential landing spot should the 27-year old eventually depart the Gunners.

When asked whether the forward could leave, manager Arsene Wenger replied: ‘I don’t know yet. I’m not in transfer mode at the moment but I think he has gone through a bad spell.’

‘He has responded very well, because he said ‘OK, I will work harder and more.’
