Arsenal winger Theo Walcott is ready to open new contract talks.

After securing defender Thomas Vermaelen on a new deal until 2015, boss Arsene Wenger is now targeting 22-year-old England ace Walcott, says The Sun.

The Gunners are set to begin negotiations with the £60,000-a-week star within the next two weeks.

Wenger has a number of other stars out of contract in 2013 including Robin van Persie, Johan Djourou and Andrey Arshavin.
