Walcott claims the players are in the dark over what will happen with their team-mates, though he insists both can play important roles while they are still at the club.
“It is for the manager and the staff to answer, whether the futures of Cesc and Samir get sorted out sooner rather than later,” said Walcott. “Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and their careers.
“Samir is always in good spirits. He is very professional and gets on with his job.
“He is playing for Arsenal and hopefully he will continue to, but only time will tell.
“Cesc is our captain. I think he has a slight knock and is working back at home, getting fit. We’ll see what’s going to happen.”
