West Ham United are reportedly keen to sign Arsenal's Theo Walcott for around £25m ($36m). The England international has become a peripheral figure at the Emirates in recent months and has been linked with a move away from the club.
The Hammers are said to be among the clubs interested in acquiring the pacey forward, who was omitted from the England squad for Euro 2016. West Ham have been linked with various big-name strikers in recent weeks, including Alexandre Lacazette, but Walcott is the man they want, according to the Evening Standard.
Walcott, 27, is said to have become frustrated by his lack of first-team opportunities at Arsenal and he is open to the idea of taking a reduction on his reported £140,000 a week salary to secure his first-team future elsewhere. He is also likely to slip further down the pecking order at Arsenal if the club succeed in signing Jamie Vardy from Leicester City.
The 29-year-old striker is currently weighing up a move to the north London giants as Euro 2016 approaches. Vardy is also reported to have received an offer from Liverpool, while his current club are said to have offered him a new deal to keep him out of Arsenal's clutches.
