Walcott not planning Arsenal exit in January
Arsenal transfer news: Theo Walcott wants to stay in January
Theo Walcott has no ambition to leave Arsenal in the January transfer window, but will instead take his pick from suitors in the summer if a new contract with the Gunners is not agreed, reports the Daily Mail.
Walcott will enter into the final six months of his deal with Arsenal at the start of January, and will be entitled to agree a pre-contract with a European club prior to a free transfer at the end of the season.
If Walcott decides against signing a new Arsenal deal, he will reportedly wait until the summer before speaking to interested clubs, which reportedly include Manchester City and Manchester United.
Walcott, though, may be encouraged to stay with Arsenal having started the last two Premier League matches in his favoured central striker's role, while the Gunners are now up to third in the table.
