Chelsea appear to have once again made their intentions known that they look to pursue Arsenal contract rebel Theo Walcott in the January transfer window according to reports from Metro on Nov. 12, 2012.
The talented 23-year-old has been looking for the chance to play as an out and out striker for the Gunners at least on a part time basis, but has seen no luck on that front. A move to Stamford Bridge could potentially see part of that dream come true.
With Daniel Sturridge looking more and more ready for an exit from London’s Blue side of life, Walcott could take his place as a winger/backup striker behind Fernando Torres. However, the added speed of Walcott to the club could allow Oscar to drop back into the midfield from the right hand side and build a more creative partnership with Juan Mata as the primary central influences.
Walcott also is a target for Liverpool and could incite a bidding war between the two clubs for the Arsenal player should Arsene Wenger not find a solution for the player’s future by the middle of December.
