Theo Walcott is shocked Arsenal haven't opened new contract talks.

The Daily Star says while the Gunners made a big effort to negotiate with Robin Van Persie this week, they made no attempt to speak face to face with Walcott, who also has a year left on his deal.

Manchester City, Chelsea and Tottenham are all aware of the 23-year-old's unrest at his treatment.

Arsenal are playing a risky game as he can leave on a free next summer.
