Theo Walcott has reportedly been told he can leave the Emirates Stadium in January according to the Daily Star.

The 28-year-old has played just 10 times for Arsenal this season with seven of those coming in cup competitions. He's not started a single league games this season, making just three substitute appearances as he appear to be surplus to requirements at Arsenal. 

Walcott will feel he still has plenty to offer at the highest level, and here are three clubs he could possibly move to in January:

Southampton

Walcott could go back to where it all began in January. The Daily Express report Southampton will be targeting their former player when the window opens in January.

Saints have scored just 15 goals this season and someone like Walcott can add both goals and assists. The 28-year-old is quick, direct and will bring competition for Manolo Gabbiadini and Charlie Austin. He has an affiliation with the club and is someone the fans will take to. 

Everton 

Everton manager Sam Allardyce has reportedly enquired about signing Walcott according to the Daily Star. The Toffees are perhaps a more attractive proposition now than they were a few weeks ago. A manager is now in place and they're in the top half.

They're a side lacking pace so Walcott would be the perfect man to change that. The former England international has often expressed his desire to play as a centre-forward. Everton haven't really replaced Romelu Lukaku so should Walcott join, Allardyce may utilise him as their main striker which could sway Walcott towards Goodison Park. 

West Ham United

David Moyes needs to inject new life into West Ham while Walcott needs to inject new life into his career, so a move to the London Stadium could be useful all parties. The Sun report that the East End club are interested. 

One other factor that may also suit the three time FA Cup winner is remaining in London which could give the Hammers an edge in the race for his signature. West Ham have some talented attacking players and a trio of Walcott, Javier Hernandez and Manuel Lanzini does sound attractive.
