Wenger frustrated with Walcott's contract stand-off

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed that he is in the dark as to the status of Theo Walcott’s contract negotiations with the club, the Daily Mail has reported.

Wenger said: “I have no news. I am frustrated. He knows what I want and he has to make up his mind.

Walcott is out of contract at the end of the season and Wenger is hoping to tie him down to a long-term contract. If the Arsenal manager is unsuccessful, he runs the risk of losing the 23-year-old England international for free in the summer.

Theo Walcott signed for Arsenal from Southampton at the start of 2006 for an initial fee of £5m. After signing for Arsenal he became the youngest player to play for England, when, at the age of 17 years and 75 days, he made an appearance in a friendly against Hungary at Old Trafford on the 30th May 2006.

He went on to be picked by then England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson for the England squad that travelled to Germany for the 2006 World Cup. Despite not playing during that tournament and missing the next World Cup in South Africa, Walcott played in Euro 2012, scoring against Sweden in the group stages. He has played 30 games for the national side, scoring four goals.

So far this season Walcott has played 12 Premier League games for Arsenal and has four goals to his name. The Mail adds that Walcott has been offered a five-year contract worth £75,000 per week, but is holding out for a weekly wage closer to £100,000.
