Walcott given two weeks to sign new Arsenal deal

December 31, 2012

Arsenal want Theo Walcott's long-term future secured within the next fortnight. 

Club officials are working to set up a second round of formal contract discussions with the player and his representatives in the next 14 days. 

Arsenal are increasingly optimistic a deal can be reached.

But the original £75,000-per-week offer made on August 28 must be improved, while Walcott also wants assurances over his chances of playing as a centre forward on a regular basis. 

The England star wants a package closer to £100,000 per week, but it is believed a deal of £85,000 or £90,000 would suit both parties. 

Meanwhile, Arsenal will this week make their move to sign Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha. 

The Gunners are set to increase their starting offer to beat Manchester United to the England player's signature. 

Arsenal had originally planned to make an £8million opening bid for the 20-year-old starlet, who wants to leave Selhurst Park in January. 

However, they are considering a more lucrative starting offer to ensure Zaha's arrival.
