Theo & Robin 2/1 to link up next season at Arsenal or elsewhere
THEO WALCOTT is 2/1 with Ladbrokes to play for the same team as Robin Van Persie next season.
Despite the markets for both players’ next clubs varying wildly the bookies don’t rule out them lining up for the same side, Arsenal or otherwise, next season.
Van Persie’s future appears clearer with Manchester City the 4/7 favourites for his signature while it’s 16/1 they sign Walcott, who has Chelsea (6/1) and Juventus (also 6/1) as joint favourites for his next club.
Newly-promoted Southampton are 33/1 to re-sign Walcott for their return to the Premier League.
Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “The odds suggest both players have their pick of the top clubs. If Walcott follows RVP out of the door we’ll have to push Arsenal’s title odds out even further.”
