Inter Milan Line Up Bid for Arsenal Winger Theo Walcott

San Siro side target Emirates Stadium wide-man.

Inter Milan are reportedly readying a bid for Arsenal winger Theo Walcott. The Serie A side are said to be keen on bringing in a number of new signings before the transfer window shuts and efforts to do so have been redoubled following the club’s narrow aggregate win over Hajduk Split in Europa League qualifying.

23 year old England international Walcott has just a year to run on his current contract and talks to renew his deal have been ongoing for some months now with seemingly little progress being made. Though the Arsenal winger has been something of an inconsistent performer over the past couple of seasons Arsene Wenger is still keen to keep hold of the former Southampton man this summer.

Inter Milan have suffered a couple of lean campaigns, during which seven managers have taken the Neraruzzi helm over the past two years, young boss Andrea Stramaccioni appears to be looking to the future with his current transfer policy.

Veterans Diego Forlan and Lucio have both left, Ivan Cordoba has retired and now Inter Milan are in pursuit of the Arsenal man who may be less inclined to consider a move to the San Siro given that the Italian giants have not qualified for the Champions League.

Wenger will be loathed to lose Walcott but the longer it takes to resolve his contract situation the more vulnerable he becomes to prospective suitors. Indeed if Arsenal feel they can not agree a deal with the young attacker then they may have to consider offers to avoid losing the player on a free transfer next summer.
