Which Arsenal player does X Factor winner want at Leicester City?

Theo Walcott 2-0 Gesture v Tottenham

Sam Bailey says that she would like to have Theo Walcott in the Leicester City team next season.

Leicester City are on course to gaining automatic promotion to the Premier League, and there is one fan who is dreaming big. Really big.

Sam Bailey is a celebrity Foxes supporter and although her life has changed drastically since she won the 2013 X Factor, the 36-year-old still regularly follows Nigel Pearson’s side.

City will head into their Championship clash against Burnley at Turf Moor on Saturday three points clear of their hosts at the top of the table.

With third-placed Queens Park Rangers 10 points behind the Clarets, it looks very likely that both Burnley and City will gain automatic promotion to the English top flight.

Things are looking bright for the Foxes and Bailey is overjoyed that she will be able to watch her team play Premier League matches at the King Power Stadium in 2014-15.

"I'm not going to say they've done it," the 36-year-old told BBC Sport. "It's looking good for them to go up but you never know. Hopefully they'll be in the Premier League next season causing a storm.

"I've not been to a game since their unbeaten streak started. I daren't go because if they lose, I'll think it's my fault. Once I know they're going to be promoted, I'll go again."

However, like all Leicester supporters, Bailey is getting carried away, perhaps a bit more than the rest.

When asked which Premier League player she would like to join the Foxes, she said: "Theo Walcott.

“He's a great player, great all-rounder. He's passionate, young, he's still got a few years left in him. I think he'd sit quite nicely with the current team."

Walcott is currently sidelined with an anterior cruciate ligament that he suffered during Arsenal’s FA Cup clash against Tottenham Hotspur in January and is set to miss out on the England squad for the 2014 World Cup finals in Brazil in the summer.

But could he be tempted to leave the Gunners and move to Leicester when he eventually returns from his injury spell? Not in my opinion.

Could Theo Walcott be tempted to join Leicester City in the summer?
