Arsenal are ready to reopen contract talks with Theo Walcott.
The Mirror says manager Arsene Wenger wants Walcottâ€™s contract sorted out Âbefore Christmas. The forward turned down an Â£80,000-a-week offer and the Gunners will see whether a compromise can be struck.
Walcott is Âunmoved by Arsenalâ€™s belief they will sign Wilfried Zaha from Crystal ÂPalace in January for Â£12million.
Despite Wengerâ€™s warning and the fact his deal runs out at the end of the season, Walcott is not working to a deadline.
Liverpool will make a bid to sign him in ÂJanuary if his dispute has not been resolved.
Manchester City, ÂChelsea and Paris Saint-Germain are also keen and Walcott may keep his options open until the summer, when he will be a free agent.
