Walcott wants centre-forward role at Arsenal


Bookmark and Share

Theo Walcott has revealed the reason he has stalled over signing a new contract at Arsenal, and insists it has nothing to do with the money being offered. The BBC reports the England international as saying he wants to leave his role as a winger behind and play as a striker under Arsene Wenger.



Walcott said: “I've been judged, with people saying it's all about money. It's never been that with me. Playing up front is important. It's one of the main factors for me.” The BBC added that Walcott is thought to have been offered a new contract that pays £75,000 per week, which he rejected in August.


The former Southampton player noted that he was bought by Arsenal as a striker but that he had learned his trade with the Gunners on the wing, insisting that he is ready to play regularly through the middle. For the last few matches Walcott has barely played at all in any position, having been named as a substitute by Wenger, who recently revealed if Walcott has not signed a new contract by April, it is unlikely he will be at the club next season.
