Time to sell Theo. Sorry. Just facin' facts...

With Alexandre Lacazette in, it's time to ask who's out, and the answer comes almost as fast as the player once ran: Theo Walcott. It may sound harsh and unsentimental, but the Theo Walcott Experiment has fizzled. Amid rumours of Everton offering £30m for the soon-to-be 29 year old, we should sell before whatever it is they're smoking over there wears off. In this market, the one in which Kyle Walker was sold at £50m and Romelu Lukaku at £75m, £30m might seem like a pittance. Theo did, after all, score 10 Prem goals (19 total) despite limited minutes. However, it's increasingly clear that we'll ever get a better offer, so it's time to move him on. Let's make it a classic "it's not you; it's me", at least to start.
