Ivan Gazidis talks about Walcott:
After yesterday’s bumper deal signed by Arsenal, their chief Ivan Gazidis spoke to the press and when asked about the contract situation of winger Theo Walcott he seemed to be tight lipped. While refusing to be drawn on specifics, Gazidis maintained the funds were available should the manager feel Walcott worth the continued investment for a bumper pay deal.
The Arsenal chief executive said: “I am not here to talk about any individual player contract discussions, but obviously we have got funds to be able to make the right decisions for the football club and we will do that based on Arsene’s judgements.”
Mean while Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has already urged the player to extend his contract. It is up to the player to decide his future now.
