A report in The Express today is suggesting that Liverpool are set to take Theo Walcott off the Gunners’ hands. The 27 year-old has been out of favour at the Emirates this season, and failed to make the England squad for Euro 2016.

Although Walcott is struggling to break into the side, it is believed that he is determined to prove himself in North London and join Olivier Giroud in the Arsenal attack.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is looking to build his own team having replaced Brendan Rodgers during last season.

The Liverpool attack has lost impetus since the departure of Luis Suarez in the summer of 2014.

While Walcott is not in the same league as the Uruguayan striker, he nonetheless offers a fast and direct approach out wide and up front.

Klopp is currently looking for a frontman after the flop of Christian Benteke. The Belgian striker failed to find form after a big money move from Aston Villa last year. Klopp is also said to be monitoring Mario Gomes, but the acquisition of Walcott would also represent a positive move in the minds of the Kop faithful.

While these reports are doing the rounds, we wouldn’t put money on Walcott plying his trade at Anfield next season.
