Ian Wright has said that Arsenal should let Theo Walcott go if they’re being offered £30m.
- Wright is a fan of Walcott but thinks £30m has to be accepted
- Everton are said to be willing to offer that much for the forward
Everton are believed to be willing to offer Arsenal £30m for the English forward as they continue to be hyperactive in the market. Walcott is currently out of the Arsenal team and may struggle to find a spot now that Arsenal are playing with one less forward.
This could be one of the reasons why Ian Wright thinks Arsenal should take £30m for him, even if he likes him.
Sad to see the amount of disrespect that Theo gets from the fans. I'll always love him, but if it is a 30 million bid, got to take it 😢

Walcott is not everyone’s favourite player but is currently the club’s longest serving player, having joined Arsenal in 2006 for £12m from Southampton.
He’s gone on to make 377 appearances in all competitions, scoring 104 goals. He scored his 100th goal for Arsenal in last season’s FA Cup win over non-league Sutton United.
£30m is a very tempting offer for the 28-year-old whose place in the Arsenal team is far from guaranteed. You’d have to think that now would be the last chance the Gunners would have to sell him, given his age.
However, it doesn’t appear that Arsenal are looking to sell at this stage, nor is Walcott looking to leave the club.
