Southampton winger Theo Walcott may discover himself leaving the south coast membership in the course of the present summer season switch window.
What’s the speak?
Talking to GIVEMESPORT, talkSPORT journalist and switch insider Alex Criminal, had this to say on the matter.
“Walcott will likely be allowed to go away if he needs to, I believe there’s even a chance that he goes to America. Moussa Djenepo, equally, if there was any curiosity and perhaps Nathan Redmond as effectively.”
Southampton re-signed the Englishman again within the 2021 summer season switch window on a free switch from Everton after spending the earlier 12 months on mortgage at St. Mary’s.
Walcott should go
Since his return to the south coast after spending the early days of his profession of their youth ranks, the 33-year-old has made 35 appearances for Ralph Hasenhuttl’s aspect throughout all competitions however has solely managed to attain three objectives and supply three assists.
In actual fact, with 12 appearances underneath his belt throughout the Premier League, FA Cup and Carabao Cup final season, the winger failed to supply even one purpose contribution for the Saints.
To additional spotlight his ineffectiveness on the pitch final season, in 9 league appearances, the previous Arsenal star picked up a measly total efficiency ranking of 6.09/10 from WhoScored, making him the lowest-rated participant to play even a second of league motion for the Saints.
In these league appearances, he may solely muster six pictures at purpose, with none of them being on course, which reveals the dearth of any purpose menace he has.
Having beforehand been slammed for not being “ok” by reporter Dan Sheldon, it appears as if his days are reasonably numbered on the south coast.
With all of this in thoughts, it ought to positively be in Southampton’s plans to get Walcott out of the membership and his £72k-per-week wages off their books, as he clearly can’t be trusted to be a constant attacking menace for the workforce.
If the Saints have been to wave goodbye to the attacker this summer season, or any of the opposite gamers Criminal talked about, securing appropriate replacements must also be on the membership’s to-do record so Hasenhuttl’s squad is sufficiently outfitted to get by means of their newest Premier League marketing campaign.
