Liverpool would love to sign Theo Walcott - Jamie Carragher

Football News

Liverpool fan favourite, now of course working as a pundit for Sky Sports, has revealed that his former club would love to sign Arsenal winger Theo Walcott.

The ex-Premier League defender, who has drawn praise for his work as an analyst, insisted that Liverpool had been interested in the England international in the past, and that any fan would be happy to see him move to Anfield. The rumour-mill began to churn earlier this week, with speculation abound that the Reds were considering trying to take Walcott on this summer.

Carragher opinion

When posed with the question about the £100,000-a-week man in his column, Carragher spoke positively over the potential move.

"He’s an Arsenal player at the moment but he is a player that Liverpool have looked at before under Rodgers," he revealed.

"He’s a good player but is struggling to get into the Arsenal team with their top attacking players. If he was available then I’m sure any Liverpool fan, player or manager would love to see him at the club. But, he is an Arsenal player at the moment, and we must respect that."

Walcott's future

Over the course of the past few games Walcott looks to have lost his favour in Arsene Wenger’s starting XI, with others being preferred, forcing him to drop to the bench. Given that he’s usually a first-team regular that in itself has prompted questions over his future, and Liverpool might well offer him the ideal way out if he wants to stay in the Premier League.

Brendan Rodgers’ side look good value for a top four finish this season, meaning that there wouldn’t be any drop in quality, and at Anfield Walcott might be given the chance to finally realise his potential.

Moving forward the future of Raheem Sterling looks increasingly uncertain following suggested interest from Real Madrid, and though Walcott isn’t as highly-rated as the youngster, he is an experienced option.

Liverpool fans, is Carragher right in saying you’d like Walcott? Let us know your thoughts in the comments box below...
