With the contractual situation of Theo Walcott now looking far from certain; Arsenal must surely start to consider replacements for their second contract rebel of the summer. While it’s still not decided that Walcott will leave and he could yet see out the final year of his contract before being available on a bosman next summer, his wage demands and the signals emanating from his camp seem to suggest a likely exit.
What Culture takes a look at the candidates who could feasibly replace Walcott for the Gunners.
The talented Wigan winger showed glimpses of serious quality towards the end of last season, with a scintillating display at the Emirates being a major highlight (he beat Sagna with a great skill to assist one of Wigan’s early goals). Moses was undoubtedly a major reason for Wigan’s Premier League survival last season, he was arguably their best player and at 21 years of age has years to develop into a star.
Although not quite as fast as Walcott, Moses still has pace to burn and has great ball control which allows him to beat players with ease. All in all he is a decent overall winger who can develop into something special. His price will be in the region of £8-12 million which is about half of what Arsenal can get from the sale of Walcott. The other clubs interested are Chelsea and Spurs but Victor Moses looks like the most viable option for a Walcott replacement.
