Arsenal contract rebel Theo Walcott wants to stay in England if he must leave the Emirates.

The Mirror says Walcott is thought to prefer an English club if his demands won't be met in North London, and Liverpool and Manchester City are those most closely following the progress of negotiations.

However, losing another valuable asset could be the straw that broke the camel's back for Arsenal fans, with pressure mounting on Wenger like never before in his 16 years with the Gunners.
