Southampton confident of loan deal for Arsenal attacker Walcott

Southampton want to set up a loan deal for Arsenal attacker Theo Walcott.

The Daily Mail says Walcott is understood to be open to a move away from the Emirates Stadium having fallen out of favour with boss Arsene Wenger.

The 28-year-old has only featured 13 times in all competitions this season and has found Premier League appearances hard to come by.

Walcott has a number of options but it is his former club who are leading the race.

The Saints are eager to bolster their attacking ranks and are ready to re-invest the £75 million fee they received for defender Virgil van Dijk in January.

Manager Mauricio Pellegrino has identified Walcott as someone who could help his side in the final third and is confident of securing a deal for the wantaway star.
