Arsenal legends says Walcott has NO power over new contract

The last time that Arsene Wenger had to persuade Theo Walcott to sign a new contract to stay with Arsenal, all the high cards were in the players’ hands. Robin van Persie had recently left for Man United and Wenger was struggling for decent options up front.

Walcott had him over a barrel really, especially as there was less than a year to run on his contract at the time. So the England international got a big pay rise as well as some guarantees over his starting place and even where he would play.
