Wenger hails Walcott commitment

Published Add your comment

Manager Arsene Wenger does not believe anyone could question Theo Walcott's commitment on the pitch as Arsenal hope to complete a deal to keep the England forward at the Emirates Stadium.

Walcott's current contract runs out in the summer, and the club have been in negotiations to close out terms on an extension which would make Walcott among the highest-paid players at the club with a five-year contract worth around £90,000 a week, boosted by lucrative add-ons.

The 23-year-old has excelled in his preferred central striker's role, netting a hat-trick in the 7-3 win over Newcastle which made him Arsenal's top scorer with 14. Wenger said: "One credit I always gave him was that I could never see a difference in training or in games, during a period that was quite difficult for him."
