Walcott unlikely to be the answer for West Ham

Latest speculation in the tabloids (so it's probably rubbish) is that West Ham might be about to launch a bid for Arsenal's Theo Walcott. He's a good player who's never quite fulfilled his potential, but I'm not sure he'd be the answer for West Ham. The last thing WHU need is another player where no-one is quite sure what his best position is. Walcott might be a striker or he might be a winger, which all sounds rather like Andre Ayew. Walcott had a good season last time out, scoring ten goals in 24 games. He has pace, but at 28 he's not young and he's quite injury-prone. If we sign a striker he has to be someone who is a specialist and can adopt the Andy Carroll role when AC gets his inevitable injuries.
