Jack Wilshere demands patience from Arsenal fans and urges Theo Walcott to ink extension
Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has urged teammate Theo Walcott to ink an extension contract with Arsenal. The young England international warned Theo Walcott from the hustle and bustle of the transfer market.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger fears he might lose Theo Walcott when the transfer window opens for business in January. Losing Theo Walcott would be devastating blow for Arsenal as the 23-year-old forward has been in fine goalscoring form recently.
Theo Walcott scored an important goal after making a rare start for Arsenal in Champions League on Tuesday night. Theo Walcott’s goal helped Arsene Wenger’s side acquire a 2-2 draw against Schalke.
In spite of his breakthrough form at Arsenal, no one is really sure whether Theo Walcott will remain at Arsenal or not. The former Southampton player is expected to have a look at the transfer market this winter before making a final decision. Theo Walcott is receiving a lot of interest from Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool.
“Theo's future is down to him and the boss to sort out and I hope he signs,” Jack Wilshere said in an interview to London’s Evening Standard Newspaper. “He has been great for us. He's an English lad and great to have around.”
Last season, Theo Walcott scored 11 goals and provided 10 assists in 46 appearances. This season, Theo Walcott already has eight goals and four assists in 14 appearances for Arsenal.
Moreover, Theo Walcott’s performance for England has been pretty good as well.
Chelsea and Liverpool are looking to add reinforcements to their attack during the winter transfer window. Both clubs are promising Theo Walcott with more first team opportunities and a better salary.
Theo Walcott’s contract with Arsenal ends after the January transfer window, which means Arsene Wenger will have a big decision during the transfer window if Theo Walcott refuses to ink the extension contract.
Theo Walcott is demanding a better salary and silverware from Arsene Wenger. Both of his concerns have solid reasoning. Arsenal’s financial pay structure is poor categorized and the club hasn’t been able to win any trophy for more than eight years now.
Jack Wilshere asked frustrated Arsenal fans to show patience with Arsene Wenger’s new side. Jack Wilshere reckons the Frenchman is in the building process of creating a brilliant new team.
“We still have a lot of new players,” Jack Wilshere said. “I have only played with them three times and we feel we are getting better and better as a team, and that we are bonding. Hopefully things will just get better from here.”
