Wenger losing patience with Walcott



Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger admitted on Friday that he is beginning to lose patience with Theo Walcott over the forward's refusal to commit to his future with the London club.

Walcott's current contract ends this summer and Wenger wants the 23-year-old to extend his deal.

Negotiations between the two sides have been going on for "a long, long time," Wenger said, but nothing has been done, putting other clubs on alert.

"He knows what I want and he has to make up his mind," Wenger said at his pre-weekend match press conference.

"We have not made any progress. I have no news, I am frustrated.

"We are in negotiations for a long, long time. We have not been late in re-negotiations with him. We always try to extend contracts very early."

Walcott, who is Arsenal's leading goalscorer this season with 10 goals from 17 appearances, reportedly rejected a five-year deal worth £75 000 per week this summer.

If the two sides cannot agree, Walcott would be free to sign a pre-contract with another club in January, or could even leave for free in the summer.
