Arsenal are ready to offload Theo Walcott in the January transfer window, according to The Sun.
The England international, aged 28, is reportedly a transfer target for Everton and West Ham United.
With Walcott refusing to sign a new contract at the Emirates Stadium unless his playing time increases dramatically, the Gunners are ready to cash-in during the next window.
The former Southampton winger has become a bit-part player for Arsene Wenger’s side in recent years and is now set to be moved on to raise funds for a replacement.
Walcott’s current contract expires in June 2019, so Wenger is planning to sell before the player enters the final 18 months of his deal.
He currently earns £110,000-a-week with the Gunners, so his salary could be a stumbling block for potential suitors and for Arsenal’s hopes of avoiding Walcott seeing out his contract with them before leaving on a free transfer.
Walcott has 107 goals in 388 appearances for the north Londonders.
