I think if we do buy Lemar and maybe Mahrez it will show Walcott for the player he is, which is no more than adequate.
It’s hard to believe this is the same player that we were all clamouring for, to sign his new contract.
I bet, like Wenger has just done, he won’t be teasing the supporters when it comes to his next contract.
We can probably still find a club to pay more than 20m for him, although when I asked my West Ham mate if he would be interested in Walcott, he wasn’t impressed, and said he would rather have Giroud or Perez.
I know it’s a pre season game, but recent seasons have shown he is often injured, very inconsistent and that even Wenger doesn’t trust him in the starting line up, so why should the supporters?
