Arsenal transfer news: Shock Barcelona winger bid prepared for January

Arsenal transfer news – shock winter deal on the cards.

There could be some bizarre Arsenal transfer news in store this January as Barcelona plot a shock bid to sign Gunners winger Theo Walcott, according to sources in Spain.

The England international is a key player for Arsene Wenger’s side this season, often playing up front due to some poor performances from Olivier Giroud.

Although he has struggled with injuries, Walcott has a solid scoring record and pace that makes him a tricky opponent for many Premier League defences, and this form has seen him come up on Barca’s radar, according to AS.

Having sold Pedro to Chelsea in the summer, the Catalan giants could do with a squad player out wide or up front, and Walcott is a similar style of player with his pace, work-rate and prolific finishing ability.
