Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has dismissed claims Theo Walcott has relaxed after signing a new deal.

Wenger refuses to believe that is the case and is looking for the 24-year-old to help fire Arsenal to a top-four finish in the Premier League.

He said: "I don't believe that. If he didn't play well and had not signed a contract, then people would say the opposite.

"I don't think that is linked, especially with the fact that he has signed a contract or not. Because you can say as well he is more secure, he can express himself.

"At Bayern he didn't have the greatest game, but he still brought the goal. He will come back."
