Wenger wants to keep Walcott

Published 6 Comments

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger insisted the club are doing all they can to keep Theo Walcott as he stressed the ongoing contract wrangle must be settled "one way or another" before the new year.

The player's current contract expires next summer and if no deal can be brokered before January, Walcott would be able to negotiate a potentially lucrative pre-contract agreement with a foreign club or just hold firm and walk away on a Bosman free.

"My desire is to keep Theo. We do what's needed to keep him and hopefully [as] I told you many times, we can sort this situation out very soon - very soon is before the end of December, one way or another, that is for sure," said Wenger.
