Reports in several english newspapers recently have suggested that Theo Walcott might not be willing to sign a new contract with the gunners this summer. After returning home with the England team after their exit from Euro 2012, the winger looks set for crunch talks with Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger over whether his place in the squad is still assured, due to the signings of Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud in the last few weeks.
After rumours of Robin Van Persie’s imminent exit from the club, Walcott is looking for re-assurance that himself and Van Persie will still both be held in high regard at the club. If these expectations are met by the club, it seems that the England goal hero against Sweden will be staying in North London at the Emirates stadium.
The apparent unrest of Arsenal’s number 14 has sparked interest from a host of big name clubs, including Manchester United and Juventus. With the gunners looking to revive a title challenge, not seen for some years now, they will hope to persuade Walcott to stay and see that the newly formed strike force can challenge the likes of Manchester City for major honours next season.
