Guardiola adds Arsenal attacker to Man City’s transfer hit list


Theo Walcott - £15million

According to reports from London Evening Standard, Arsenal star Theo Walcott is on Manchester City’s radar ahead of the summer transfer window. 

The England international is coming to the end of this eleventh campaign at the Emirates but has rarely held down a role as a regular starter either as a central forward or a winger.

Many have found the 27-year-old’s performances this season particularly disappointing, netting just nine times, and he’s not started a Premier league fixture for the Gunners since a 2-1 defeat to Manchester United in February.

That has created doubts over whether Walcott will make Roy Hodgson’s squad for Euro 2016 and consequentially, whether his future at the Emirates will span beyond the summer transfer window.

According to London Evening Standard, that has seen the former Southampton youngster emerge as a potential transfer target for Manchester City, with incoming manager Pep Guardiola a huge fan of his speedy services.

Manager Arsene Wenger has already admitted Walcott’s future remains unclear and the Citizens are prepared to match the £140k per week contract he currently earns in a bid to bolster their home-grown numbers.
