West Ham United are reportedly interested in signing England international forward Theo Walcott this summer, according to the London Evening Standard.

The Premier League side, who finished seventh in the English top-flight standings this term in their final campaign at the Boleyn Ground ahead of their move to the Olympic Stadium, are understood to be exploring the possibility of making an approach for the Arsenal winger.

The 27-year-old, who has 43 international caps for the Three Lions but is not included in England’s 23-man squad for EURO 2016 this month, scored nine goals and provided seven assists in 42 appearances in all competitions for the Gunners last season.

Walcott, who is believed to be becoming frustrated at a lack of first-team opportunities at the Emirates Stadium, could be offloaded by manager Arsene Wenger if Arsenal manage to secure the signing of England teammate and Leicester City star Jamie Vardy.

The report suggests a fee in the region of £25m could be involved.
