Arsenal talks in progress as Wenger to make £30 million man one of clubs highest paid players

There has been some reports which have claimed Arsenal are ready to make Theo Walcott among the club’s highest paid player, according to the Daily Mirror website.

The England winger has just come back from injury, but the Gunners are keen to tie down a new deal rather than go through the saga they had a few years ago.

He has already begun negotiations that will put him in the Gunners’ top pay tier with Mesut Ozil (£140,000-per-week) and Alexis Sanchez (£130,000).

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger yesterday confirmed that talks are under way as Walcott’s current £90,000-a-week deal expires in summer 2016. © 2017 Frontier Theme
