"Sky Sports" and many other media reported that Walcott is close to joining Southampton on loan. Darren Bent said in an interview with British media Football Insider that Walcott needs game time and he was right to go to Southampton.
《天空体育》（Sky Sports）等许多媒体报道说，沃尔科特（Walcott）即将借入南安普敦（Southampton）。达伦·本特（Darren Bent）在接受英国媒体《足球内幕》采访时说，沃尔科特需要比赛时间，他去南安普敦是正确的。
Benter said: "For Walcott, he is now in a bit of a difficult situation. Because his performance has been unstable for the past few years."
"He can help the team. He still has speed and can still get into dangerous areas where he can cause problems for his opponents. But whatever the reason, he has been nothing since Walcott left Arsenal. Change, he has not really made progress."
"Everton allowed him to leave the team, so naturally there will be teams who want Walcott. In my opinion, Walcott is a player who needs to play every week. Then you will watch. The best thing about Walcott. He still has speed, is in good condition, and not too old. For me, I would not think that Walcott was the wrong choice to go to Southampton."
