West Ham and Arsenal fans react on Twitter to Theo Walcott transfer rumour

The Hammers have been linked with a shock move for the Gunners' forward.

It promises to be a busy summer for West Ham United, who aren't only moving grounds but plotting a move up the table next season.

On Monday, co-chairman David Sullivan confirmed a €30 million striker bid has already been lodged, with a £20 million-£25 million offer for a player based in England to follow.

No sooner had Sullivan made the revelation, the Hammers were reported by the Sun to be closing in on a deal for Arsenal and England forward Theo Walcott.

The 27-year-old was tipped to become a superstar of English football upon moving to north London from Southampton a decade ago.

However, things haven't quite panned out that way, with injuries perhaps hindering Walcott's progress.

His continued presence in Roy Hodgson's Three Lions squads - not to mention the mooted £20 million transfer fee - suggests we shouldn't give up on the Arsenal number 14 yet.

Perhaps a change of scenery is required?

Some fans - of both clubs - would appear to agree with that, though others aren't quite so optimistic.

Here's the view from both camps on Twitter...
