Southampton are moving to re-sign Arsenal winger Theo Walcott.

The Sunday Mirror says Arsenal remain hopeful of seeing off interest from Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Tottenham and now Southampton, and will this week reopen talks with Walcott's advisers over the 23-year-old's future.

But the newly promoted Saints want to take Walcott back to his first sporting home.

They have become the ­latest club to ask about ­Walcott's availability and were not put off by the fact they would have to pay at least £15million and £100,000-a-week in wages to secure his signature.
