The Walcott made one of his rare appearances for Arsenal in the 2-2 draw against Chelsea at the Emirates last night in an entertaining game, and that was only his 5th appearance ion the Premier League this season.
Theo hasn’t played much football this season for the Gunners, and in 14 appearances he has scored 4 goals and has 5 assists.
The Star is reporting that Newcastle are one of four Premier League clubs interested in signing the England winger this month.
Theo wants regular football so he has a chance to make the England squad for the World Cup in Russia this month.
Theo Walcott – could be available from Arsenal
While it will be difficult to get him to come to the north-east Rafa could get the best out of him, just like he did with Andros Townsend almost two years ago now.
So moving to Newcastle on loan this month could probably offer him his best chance of making the England squad.
He would start most games at Newcastle, and he would be coached by a top-level manager in Rafa Benitez.
Everton, West Ham, and Southampton are the other clubs interested, and he may want to return to his former club – Southampton.
In fact, it looks like the Saints are favorites to sign him.
Walcott has been out of favor with England manager Gareth Southgate and has a lot to do in the next five months to get a place in the England squad for Russia.
But he is a class player and would definitely improve the Newcastle side.
He has played 397 times for Arsenal since signing for them from Southampton back in 2005 and he has scored 108 goals with 78 assists.
He has 47 England caps with 8 goals.
