According to some reports Theo Walcott maybe going out on loan. Wenger said last week that Theo isn't where he wants him to be, yet. But he may feel that letting the youngster go out on loan could develop him quicker, and reap the benefits of this for when he came back.
Club's in the Premiership were apparently made aware of the fact that Theo could be available to loan, and one club strongly linked were West Ham. The loan would only be until the end of the season. Wenger doe's feel letting players out on loan can help the player gain vital progress and maybe this is the situation here. But, he only lets them out on loan with the assurance of first team football otherwise he won't let them go.
Theo has got great potential and Wenger splashed out a reported £13 million on the youngster, I think it was £5 million upfront. The player has yet to establish himself and seems short of confidence at times and even out of his depth. I feel he could develop into a good player. It must be hard that the spotlight is on him so early in his career, and maybe a short term move out of it will do his long term future good.
Keep it Goonerish......
