Theo Walcott has only played 48 minutes in the Premier League during three substitute appearances this season and has only been seen in action in cup competitions and in the Europa league and Carabao campaigns.
With a somehow uncertain future in Arsenal and after almost 12 years at the Emirates, former Gunners record goalscorer Ian Wright thinks it is time for Walcott to find a new team.
When asked if Walcott needs to move on, Wright said:
“I think so, for his own sake.
“I’m not sure where he can go now with Arsenal and he’s only playing in the Carabao Cup and the Europa League.
“He’ll want to finish on a high in respect of what he’s doing, he’s given Arsenal great service in the time he’s been there and for me, he should move on for himself.”
Even Darren Bent acknowledges the need for Walcott to find a new club soon as there is no way that he can further improve his skills with Arsenal.
“The freshness of a move somewhere else might be perfect for him. He’s been there for a long, long time now and I’m not quite sure how much more he can improve while he’s there.
“But you never know, sometimes you can go somewhere else with new surroundings and, all of a sudden, you can kick on again. Maybe that’s what he needs.”
