Even though the press is focusing all of its attention on Arsenal’s Robin Van Persie, the Dutchman is not the only top rated star who has refused to extend his contract, as Theo Walcott has also entered the last year of his contract with the Gunners.
The indecision hasn’t gone unnoticed as a host of clubs amongst which Chelsea, PSG and Juventus are believed to be hot on the winger’s trail, and if rumours are to be believed a transfer fee of £15million would be enough to convince Arsenal’s officials to let Walcott go if the winger won’t agree to extend his contract with the club.
Everybody expected both Robin Van Persie and Walcott to sign new contracts as soon as they return from their Euro campaign, but the two stars have gone straight to holiday leaving the more important business for later in the summer.
Both Robin and Walcott are seemingly on their way out and their decisions are probably related to each other. If Robin will stay the speedy winger will surely take his example and continue with the Gunners, but in case the Dutchman leaves Wenger will surely be back to square one after the excellent transfers he’s made so far this summer. What do you think will happen?
