The situations of Chelsea’s Daniel Sturridge and our own Theo Walcott are very similar. They are both unsettled at their present clubs seemingly because they are both being used as wingers but are both adamant that they have a godgiven right to be deployed as an out-and-out striker.
Liverpool are definitely in the market for another striker and the rumours are saying that they want either Walcott or Sturridge to move up Merseyside in January, but with the Arsenal man not wanting to leave London there is surely more probability that he would prefer a move to our London neighbours, and perhaps Chelsea would allow Sturridge to move to the Emirates in exchange.
Many Arsenal fans think that Sturridge is too greedy to play for the Gunners, but surely any top centre-forward needs that to be a successful goal-poacher, and how many times do Arsenal fans shout SHOOT when the current players try to pass the ball into the net?
There is no doubt that Sturridge is a proven Premiership goalscorer despite his character flaws, and I for one would welcome him the Emirates in a heartbeat, but I’m not sure that Chelsea would let him come to us.
What do you think? Keep Walcott or swap for Sturridge?
