Theo interest hots up
Tottenham and Chelsea are both showing an interest in Theo Walcott should Arsenal fail to tie him down to a new deal.
Walcott has just 12 months remaining on his current contract and the Gunners face a battle to keep hold of the winger with Spurs, Chelsea and French side Paris Saint Germain all keen. The winger's agents pulled out of transfer talks last year and there have been suggestions the player is waiting to see whether Robin van Persie signs a new deal before committing his own future. Arsenal want the situation sorting this summer as there is a real chance he could leave for free in 12 months time and Arsene Wenger could decide to cash in if the player shows any sign of wanting to move on. Chelsea have been showing interest for some time and Roman Abramovich will get the cheque book out straight away if shown encouragement and now Spurs are also said to be in the running.
