Arsenal winger Theo Walcott’s astronomical contract demands could lead to him move to one of The Gunners’ Premier League rivals, according to The Daily Star.

The England international is requesting a new four-year deal worth £85,000 a week.

The likes of Liverpool and Chelsea are reportedly being alerted with Arsenal so far stalling over completing a deal.

Walcott joined Arsenal in 2006 for an initial fee of £5 million from Southampton.

His contribution to the four-four chasing Gunners has been limited this season, having netted just once in his last 19 appearances.

Goals will have to arrive more readily in the New Year, with Gervinho and Marouane Chamakh both leaving for the African Cup of Nations later this month.

The clubs being linked with Walcott are Liverpool and Chelsea, along with big spending Paris St Germain and Juventus, long-term reported admirers of the 22-year-old.

Despite their reported interest, a move from either Liverpool or Chelsea for Walcott is unlikely, not least because of their rivalry in the Premier League.
