A lot of speculation has been building over the last couple of days that Theo Walcott might be joining Robin Van Persie and Alex Song out of the Emirates Stadium, with Manchester City and Liverpool ready to pounce, however all these rumours have been slashed by Arsene Wenger confirming that Theo will be staying at Arsenal beyond the deadline day.
Theo Walcott is in his last year of his contract at Arsenal and reports started that Theo and the club were in talks over him signing a new deal, however after a first meeting with Arsenal boss, Arsene Wenger, Theo and the club failed the reach an agreement which then caught the attention of Liverpool and Manchester City.
On Thursday, it was reported that after several more meetings, Theo Walcott and the club came to a verbal agreement that will see Theo Walcott stay at Arsenal this summer at least. Arsene Wenger has confirmed that talks are ongoing and he strongly believes that Theo Walcott will stay at the club “he loves”.
