Is Theo Walcott´s place in Arsenal, in danger?

So far, Theo Walcott has spent 11 years wearing the Arsenal jersey and he has consistently been able to make over 20 appearances in almost every single season with just a few exceptions.

It´s pretty impressive for any player to perform at such a steady level throughout many years, however, despite making so many performances, Walcott has not really managed to lift any top level trophy with Arsenal or make a name for himself as a truly influential player.

Theo Walcott is a decent footballer in his own right but he has never managed to take that next step and create his own legacy other than just being that very fast player.

When it comes to key Arsenal figures, it hard to deny that Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez are the most influential and crucial performers for the English Premier League outfit.

During the 2016-17 season of the top tier English League, Walcott made 29 appearances which is a large amount but 10 of those arrived from the bench as he was a substitute player and in many of the matches that Walcott did actually start from the beginning of the match, he could never conclude a game till the end and was regularly offloaded around the 60th or 70th minute.

Alexandre Lacazette is one of the summer signings of Arsenal as the Frenchman arrived from Lyon with a price tag which is believed to be in the region of €53 million.

This arrival might hamper Theo Walcott´s time in the pitch even further as they are both offensive players and considering the recent drop to the sidelines that Walcott has suffered, the addition of more players will make it even more difficult for the Englishman to keep his place in the starting XI of Arsene Wenger.
