Agent announces £30 million man will be an Arsenal player

The agent of Arsenal star Theo Walcott has quashed talks of a loan move to Fiorentina.

Reports yesterday suggested that the Serie A outfit were keen to take Walcott on a temporary deal in the January transfer window.

But the winger’s agent, Colin Gordon, insists that his client won’t be leaving the Emirates for Italy due to his £100,000-per-week contract.

As quoted on the Daily Express website, he said: “Theo is liked by a lot of teams and it’s likely there’s interest from Fiorentina.

“I have a great relationship with that club, I respect and admire their leaders. I just don’t think there is an opportunity to see Walcott in Florence.

“I don’t think that Fiorentina have the money to get him. I think it’s an almost impossible deal for them and I was never contacted by them about Theo.” © 2017 Frontier Theme
