Theo Walcott reportedly wants to stay at Arsenal despite not starting a single Premier League game since the end of February.
The England international was pushed out of the the Gunners team by the return of the fit-again Danny Welbeck and the emergence of Alex Iwobi, and faces being pushed further down the pecking order by the potential £20m signing of Jamie Vardy.
Now, ‘a source with knowledge of Walcott’s plans has told ESPN FC that the forward wants to stay and fight for a place at Arsenal’, with the Daily Telegraph claiming this week that Walcott has already been told that he will be viewed as a right-winger next season.
Walcott was left out England’s Euro 2016 squad after a season in which he started only 15 Premier League games.
According to the Telegraph: ‘The 27-year-old had previously pushed for a chance to play regularly through the middle, but now accepts he fits better into Wenger’s side out wide and wants to concentrate on trying to make the position his own.’
