Reports: Walcott Signs At Last

Theo Walcott has ended this season’s longest running transfer saga by signing a contract extension with Arsenal.

The England forward drove a hard bargain with the Gunners, who were always reluctant to lose him to one of their Premier League rivals.

Liverpool and Manchester United were keeping close tabs on Walcott, after he stalled on Arsenal’s offer of a long-term contract extension.

Walcott wanted reassurances of more game time as a striker, as well as a pay rise.

Arsenal initially refused to be held to ransom by Walcott, but he has proved to be one of the club’s bright sparks in their so far dark season.

And so the Gunners have seemingly rewarded Walcott for his good form with a contract offer more to his liking.

Reports suggest that 23-year-old Walcott has now penned a deal, which will see him remain at the Emirates for another three-and-a-half years.

Arsenal fans will be excited that the Walcott wrangle is now over.

Firstly, because the club has secured the services of one of England’s most deadly internationals.

And secondly, because manager Arsene Wenger has intimated that once Walcott’s signature was on paper, Arsenal would concentrate on the recruitment of new players to aid their flagging season.
