Chelsea interested in Arsenal winger Walcott
Arsenal are once again preparing themselves for bids for one of their first eleven, but this time it’s winger Theo Walcott.
According to the Metro, Chelsea and PSG are lining up offers for the England international after it emerged he only has one year left on his contract at the Emirates and is yet to agree anything close to a new deal.
Roberto Di Matteo is thought to be keen on attracting the 22-year-old to Chelsea and a deal in the region of £15 million may be enough to tempt their North London rival into selling the former Southampton protégé.
As with most transfer stories this summer, PSG are reportedly interested with Carlo Ancelotti also lining up a bid for the speedy attacker as he looks to build a squad ready for Ligue 1 and Champions League glory next season.
Walcott signed for Arsenal in 2006 and has gone on to play 149 league games for the club, scoring 26 times. In the same year he was a shock inclusion in the England World Cup squad making his debut in a friendly for England B against Belarus, though he didn’t feature at the tournament.
