Arsenal pass up chance for Theo Walcott talks

Arsenal winger Theo Walcott is in contract limbo as the Gunners have yet to open new contract talks, despite having the perfect opportunity this week.

Emirates Stadium boss Arsene Wenger has publicly stated many times his desire to resolve the issues surrounding Walcott’s failure to agree a new deal but this has not been backed up behind the scenes, according to the Daily Star.

The 23-year-old had to pull out of England duty this week due to picking up an injury against Fulham in the 3-3 draw at Emirates Stadium last Satruday.

This meant he remained with the other players not away on international duty at Arsenal’s training ground at London Coney, giving the Gunners the perfect opportunity to begin further discussions.

However, the report claims no approach was made and that Walcott is still waiting to hear from the club after previous talks ended without a resolution.

Walcott’s contract expires at the end of the season and, should Arsenal fail to secure his signature, he will be able to sign a pre-contract agreement with a foreign club once the January transfer window opens.

The winger has been in good form this season, scoring eight goals, but he has struggled to get into Wenger’s starting XI, something that could be connected with his failure to agree a new deal.
