Southampton legend Matt Le Tissier feels Theo Walcott should leave Arsenal.

Walcott joined Arsenal as a 16-year-old from Le Tissier’s former club Southampton back in January 2006, but has never been given an ­extended chance in his favoured role of centre-forward.

“I’ve never really thought that the way Arsenal play football suited the way that Theo plays football – I don’t think he was ever suited to Arsene Wenger’s style of play,” said Le Tissier.

“It wouldn’t surprise me if he moved and you may find that it ­actually does him good if he went to a club that played to his strengths.”
