Theo Walcott has told friends he still expects to be with the Gunners next season, despite a hugely disappointing campaign and interest from West Ham.

THEO WALCOTT wants to stay at Arsenal

Walcott’s loss of form saw him lose his spot in Arsenal starting line up and  axed when Roy Hodgson’s provisional Euro 2016 squad was announced on Monday.

He has also seen Arsenal fans turn against him.

The Hammers want to make some marquee signings this summer as they move into the Olympic Stadium.

They are ready to pay £20m for the 27-year-old and offer him regular football.

Theo Walcott made just 15 starts in the Premier League season just ended, with 13 appearances off the bench, scoring only five goals

Meanwhile, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger hopes to conclude one important piece of business before Euro 2016 kicks off on June 10.

He has been out of the country and is believed to have been working hard to tie up a £34m deal for Granit Xhaka.

Wenger is keen to land the Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder early, having being accused in the past of leaving it too late to sign players.
