This is where an interesting question/topic is posed for your responses. The comment with the most number of thumbs up will obviously be the best response made in the debate.
Today’s topic is:
Would you accept or decline an offer from Chelsea to swap Fernando Torres for Theo Walcott?
Torres remains out of form while Walcott until yesterday was on a purple patch.
Both players from either side of London have been much-maligned this season. And knowing the Gunners’ reputation in transfer dealings with Chelsea despite their rivalry, any deal could be on the cards as both clubs look to offload players.
Torres has gone out of favour at Stamford Bridge after the return of Drogba while Theo Walcott is yet to fully convince Arsenal over a new contract at the club.
So what if Arsenal and Chelsea came to a compromise similar to the one between William Gallas and Ashley Cole.
Torres might have attracted a £50 million price tag just over a year ago but indeed, his form has been so poor that Walcott’s own lowly record of five goals in the Premier League all season is actually more than that of the Spaniard (two).
Apart from that, Walcott at 22 years old still has age on his side and perhaps is yet to reach his peak, while others believe that Torres who had been undoubtedly world class prior to his Chelsea move just needs a new environment to rediscover his golden touch.
But would you accept a swap deal to offload Walcott – who has attracted Chelsea’s interest – and get Torres?
