Theo Walcott is one of those players that just cannot seem to hit the right stride for Arsenal. Even when he is played as a striker instead of as a winger, his performances this season haven’t been all that great to show. In the game against Manchester United, he was extremely poor but again in some games he is unplayable.
It is this kind of inconsistency that might not work for Arsene Wenger as he looks to finally end his decade-long duck of not winning the Premier League. Arsenal may win the league this season but certainly they need a winger or attacker who can get the job done for them.
The transfer window in the summer will be important for Arsenal as they would be looking to push on from the current performance levels and we provide three replacements for the English Speed merchant who could be targeted by Wenger soon.
- Xherdan Shaqiri
A surprising signing for many when Xherdan signed for the Potters at the start of the season. He probably was looking for a taste of the Premier League and moving to a side which isn’t expected to challenge for the title does provide lesser expectations and pressure.
Shaqiri though has shown glimpses of what he is capable of when playing in the league. The Swiss international is crafty and pacey enough to replace Walcott or any other player in the league. Arsene would probably have to pay a bucket load to sign him from Stoke but it would be a wise move for the present and the future.
