Arsenal open new contract talks with Walcott

Theo Walcott has opened new contract talks with Arsenal.

The Sunday Mirror says the 22-year-old England winger will have just one year left on his deal at the end of the season.

And manager Arsene Wenger is anxious to avoid a repeat of the scenario that saw Samir Nasri quit the Emirates for Manchester City in a £20million deal during the summer.

Nasri had 12 months left on his contract - and if Arsenal had not sold him, they faced losing him for nothing next June on a Bosman transfer.

Wenger has told the board he wants Walcott's long-term future sorted out now.
