Ian Wright believes that Arsenal should axe Theo Walcott this summer if Everton submit a bid for him in the region of £30million.
The Daily Mirror have reported that the Toffees are lining up a £30million move for the 28-year-old this summer.
Walcott has been with the Gunners since 2006, but Everton are now eyeing the winger to continue their summer reshuffle.
Wright feels that fans have reacted in a negative manner to reported interest in the attacker, but states that the north London club must accept a huge £30million fee if its received.
“Sad to see the amount of disrespect that Theo gets from the fans. I’ll always love him but if it is a £30million bid, got to take it,” Wright wrote on his personal Twitter account.

Walcott has racked up 383 appearances for Arsenal and enjoyed a great goalscoring year last season.
The right winger managed 19 goals across all competitions, including four in the Champions League.
However, he struggled to cement his position in the starting line-up and faces competition from the likes of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Alex Iwobi, Alexis Sanchez and Danny Welbeck.
Everton will need to fill the void left by striker Romelu Lukaku, who scored 26 goals across all competitions last season.
Walcott has proven himself to be regular goalscorer from the wide position and can also be deployed in a central area.
In other Arsenal transfer news, they have opened negotiations over a £35million-rated striker.
