Walcott insists priority is Arsenal stay

Theo Walcott insists he wants to stay at Arsenal.

It has been suggested Walcott is seeking assurances of more playing time, especially up front.

Arsene Wenger converted Thierry Henry from a winger to Arsenal's all-time leading goalscorer and Walcott, who inherited the Frenchman's number 14 jersey, told ESPN on Monday: "I want to be an Arsenal legend. Thierry joined the club when he was 22 and I want to become an Arsenal legend like him, playing up front as well, which is a big factor for me.

"I've played on the right wing and had the opportunity to play up front a bit more so I think it's about time."
