Arsene Wenger insists he remains optimistic of tying Chelsea, Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool target Theo Walcott down to a new contract.

Walcott’s current deal expires next summer and he has so far refused to pen a new deal, but Wenger is confident about keeping the forward, who has played in his favoured position of striker in the Gunners’ last two games.

“Yes [talks are ongoing],” said Wenger

“Yes [I remain optimistic].”

Walcott is Arsenal’s top scorer this season with 11 goals in all competitions, but a host of Premier League clubs are reportedly keen on luring him away from the Emirates.
