Ok, so he still hasn’t actually ‘signed da ting’, but the BBC at least is confident that Theo Walcott is about to splash the ink on a new deal at Arsenal. It even suggests it could be done today.
“Agreements have now been reached between Arsenal and their top scorer, who could put pen to paper on Friday if legal formalities can be completed.”
So there’s no source and no details, but the BBC don’t tend to run stories like this unless they are very confident in their facts.
Arsene Wenger said yesterday that he was 99% sure that Walcott would agree a new deal.
Slightly disappointing news for Gunners fan comes from Goal.com which claims that Arsenal target Wilfried Zaha is on the verge of becoming a Man United player. Apparently The Reds have bid £6 million for the winger.
United made the first formal move on Thursday for the forward, who has privately told the Premier League leaders that he favours a move to Old Trafford ahead of the Gunners.
Palace have rejected United’s cash offer as they hold out for a higher fee and will wait to see if Arsenal will also make a bid.
It will be interesting to see if Wenger now makes his move.
