Potters keen on Walcott

Published Add your comment

Stoke are poised to launch an ambitious bid to try to sign Arsenal starlet Theo Walcott on loan.

The 18-year-old striker, who has scored three goals this season, has been used sparingly by Gunners boss Arsene Wenger this season and the Coca-Cola Championship side are hoping the lure of first-team football will see the England international move to the Britannia Stadium.

Chairman Peter Coates confirmed Stoke´s interest in Walcott but conceded the chances of him dropping down a division are slim, telling BBC Radio Stoke: "We will enquire but I guess he´ll want to stay in the Premier League."
