Walcott & Carzola Sign Arsenal Contract Extensions

Arsenal winger Theo Walcott has penned a new four-year contract with the north London club.

England international Walcott joined the Gunners from Southampton in 2006 and has scored 50 league goals in 208 appearances.

The 26-year-old, who was out for ten months with a knee injury he sustained in January 2014, will now earn £140,000 a week.

Spain midfielder Santi Cazorla has also signed a two-year contract extension.

“Both are top-quality players who are hugely important and influential to our squad,” manager Arsene Wenger said.

“As well as their huge contributions on the pitch, they both have a great deal of experience and are very popular off the pitch.”

Walcott’s previous deal was due to expire at the end of the 2015-16 campaign. He is currently the longest-serving player in Arsenal’s squad.
