Theo Walcott should Arsenal leave “for his own sake”, according to Ian Wright.

Walcott has become a fringe player at the club and isn’t threatening the first team at all with his recent performances.

Despite scoring three goals this season against Doncaster and BATE Borisov, his performances in the Carabao Cup and the Europa League have left a lot to be desired.

Ian Wright feels that the 28-year-old should be seriously thinking about his future at the club and moving on for his own good.

“I’m not sure where he can go now with Arsenal and he’s only playing in the Carabao Cup and the Europa League,” Wright said, as reported by the Evening Standard.

“He’ll want to finish on a high in respect of what he’s doing, he’s given Arsenal great service in the time he’s been there and for me he should move on for himself.”

Walcott was a first team regular until the latter stages of his last season, when Arsene Wenger changed the formation.

With one less attacker required, Walcott was bumped down to the bench. He’s stayed there ever since.

He’s now behind Danny Welbeck and Alex Iwobi in the pecking order, and has to make do with cup appearances.

It’s been a sharp decline in fortunes for a player who scored 19 goals in all competitions last season.

Walcott has been at Arsenal for 11 years and has scored 107 goals in 388 appearances for the club.

In my view, he’s given plenty to the club and can’t give much more. A fresh start for both parties may be the best solution.
