Arsene Wenger has hinted at possibility of Theo Walcott staying at Arsenal for a couple more years.
Walcott has been restricted to just three Premier League appearances this season and all have been from the substitute bench.
Since Wenger switched to a three at the back formation, Walcott has found it difficult to find his way back into the first team and it’s now looking increasingly unlikely for him to force his way back into the starting line up.
Walcott was heavily linked with a move away from the Emirates in the summer. However, he opted to stay to fight for his place in Arsenal’s team. He’s is yet to start a Premier League game this season but has been a regular in our cup games, scoring a brace against Borisov in the Europa League last month.
Wenger has now urged him to remain patient as he will get a chance to play a key role in Arsenal’s Premier League title challenge.
“I do not want Theo to move on,” Wenger said at his pre- match press conference, as quoted by Squawka.
“His time in the Premier League will come.
“At the moment he has got less minutes in the Premier League than other competitions.”
Walcott is Arsenal’s longest serving player, having joined the club since 2006. He’ll be hoping he can force his way back into the starting xi this season in order to be a part of the English squad traveling to Russia for the world cup at the end of the season.
