ARSENAL: Theo Walcott sets for new three-year deal

Posted: October 6, 2012 in Sports

Theo Walcott is ready to sign a new contract with Arsenal.

The England winger has been involved in talks for three months without agreement.

But Walcott has made it clear he wants to stay at the Emirates and negotiations will resume in the next fortnight.

It is hoped the deal can be ratified by the beginning of December – and certainly before the opening of the January transfer window.

Indications are a three-year extension will be sorted out.

Chelsea and Manchester City are monitoring the situation but Walcott, who has not been a regular first choice this season, said: “I have to play the waiting game for now.

“I just want to get back in the team and show people what I can do.”

Meanwhile, Arsene Wenger could use a £35m windfall to enter the chase for Radamel Falcao.
