It is definitely one of the more outlandish Arsenal transfer rumours doing the rounds today, but if it is true it would seem to be an excellent deal for Arsene Wenger right now.
With it now seeming extremely unlikely that Robin Van Persie is going to extend his contract at Arsenal, the Gunners are going to be in desperate need of another prolific centre-forward to fill his shoes, and Chelsea’s Daniel Sturridge certainly has the promise to do that with aplomb.
According to this morning’s Sun, the young Englishman has let it be known that he is not happy being stuck out on the wing at Chelsea and is said to be looking for a top team where he can be fielded as the main striker, which would be a certainty if Van Persie is not at the Emirates next season.
Walcott is also entering the last year of his contract with Arsenal and if he also decides to move on then Wenger will have no choice but to let him go at the end of the season, and if Chelsea are that keen to take him to Stamford Bridge then Wenger should bite their hand off if they agree to swap Sturridge.
I would be very surprised to find an Arsenal fan that would prefer to keep the inconsistent Walcott than swap him for the Chelsea youngster…….
Anyone care to disagree?
