Arsenal prepared to up Walcott contract offer

Arsenal are prepared to up their contract offer to Theo Walcott.

The Daily Mail says Arsenal chiefs previously told the England international they were unwilling to increase their original £75,000-per-week offer, which was rejected by Walcott in August.

But he Gunners' stance on the issue has softened in recent weeks, with the club now willing to reach a compromise with the forward.

It is believed both parties feel an offer of between £80,000 - £85,000-per-week will be enough to secure Walcott's long-term future.
