Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has urged the club to retain the services of England international teammate Theo Walcott.

Walcott is currently locked in contract discussions with the Gunners, with the club’s hierarchy unwilling to match his wage and playing-time demands for an extension to his current deal which expires at the end of this season, leading to speculation that the 22-year-old may be sold in the January transfer window.

However, according to the Daily Telegraph, Wilshere believes that the club must do everything they can to tie down Walcott, who has made a blistering start to the season, scoring eight goals in 14 appearances, only four of which have come as starts.

Theo has been great,” said Wilshere. “His future is down to him and the boss to sort out. I hope he does sign. He has been great for us. He’s an English lad and great to have around.

Arsenal next face a home clash with Fulham as they look to improve on their stuttering Premier League form of late, which has seen them only take one win from their last three matches.
