Walcott Puts Pen To Paper On New Arsenal Deal

Arsenal fans can now heave a sigh of relief as indications emerged that unsettled forward, Theo Walcott, has put pen to paper on a new Arsenal contract after months of negotiations with the England international’s agents.

Theo WalcottWalcott, 23, who initially rejected what was described as a “final offer” worth £75,000 a week in August, has now agreed a new contract with the north London club worth £100,000 a week and is understood to be for three and a half years.

With an end to the protracted negotiations, Arsene Wenger can now look forward to Sunday’s clash against Chelsea at the Emirates stadium with his prolific forward expected to play a crucial role – his first ever goal for Arsenal came against Chelsea in the 2007 League Cup final.
