Walcott linked with City move
Arsenal face a battle to keep hold of Theo Walcott as Manchester City are ready to offer £12million for the winger.
City are keen to sign a new winger after selling Adam Johnson to Sunderland and reports claim they are set to turn their attentions to Walcott after failing to agree a deal for Swansea's Scott Sinclair.
The Swans have rejected City's bid of £6.2million and Roberto Mancini is now set to offer double that in an attempt to lure Walcott away from the Emirates Stadium.
The Gunners now find themselves in another difficult situation as just like Robin van Persie was, Walcott is out of contract in 12 months and will be able to leave on a free transfer.
The 23-year-old is also a target for Liverpool and it looks like being a busy few days for Gunners boss Arsene Wenger as he will need to find a replacement fast should Walcott leave.
