Theo Walcott will not join us this summer, instead preferring to stay and fight for his place at Arsenal.
According to the Daily Star, the 27-year-old faces an uncertain future in North London after falling down the pecking order last term.
He only made 15 league starts for the Gunners and although he did manage to bag five goals, only two of those came after Christmas; one when his side demolished Watford 4-0 in April and one in their dramatic 2-1 win over eventual champions Leicester in February.
The Star claim that we were considering launching a £25 million raid last week, but that noises coming out of the Walcott camp have deterred us.
Apparently, he wants to give himself one more season at the Emirates and see if he can once again become a central pillar of Arsene Wenger’s starting eleven.
It is reported that if we do decide make a move, we’ll face stiff competition from Man City.
