The source states that, after a lengthy series of negotiations, the England man put pen to paper on a new four-year deal with the club worth £140,000 a week. His teammate, Santi Cazorla, also signed an extension and will stay with us for another two years.
Walcott responded by showing us every one of his team photos since he joined the Gunners back in 2006:
This truly feels like a career-defining season for Walcott. As he approaches the peak years of his career, it’s vitally important that the 26-year-old justifies his new big-money contract and helps lead us to a third major trophy in as many years.
The former Southampton man has only made 27 Premier League appearances over the last two seasons – scoring ten goals – due to a lengthy injury lay-off. However, with a strong pre-season campaign behind him, there’s real hope that this could finally be his year.
