Theo Walcott made his long awaited return to the Arsenal first-team in January, after a nightmare injury-ridden 12 months, yet since his comeback, the winger has been linked with a shock move away, having spent most of his time sat on the bench.
There have been reports that Liverpool are keen to secure his signature in the summer, as well as rumours that he has had a bust-up with Arsene Wenger, and that he has become demanding over a new contract, but the England international isn’t happy with the speculation – claiming the rumours to be nothing but ‘nonsense’.
Walcott had this to say over the gossip on his official Twitter account…
I don’t normally comment on false stories about myself but reports about contract demands & bust-ups with the boss are complete nonsense…

There have been no contract talks as yet and my current focus is not on contracts but on doing my best for Arsenal FC. — Theo Walcott (@theowalcott) March 26, 2015
The 26-year-old unfortunately suffered his spell on the sidelines when Arsene Wenger recruited heavy competition for his position from Alexis Sanchez and Danny Welbeck in the summer.
Walcott’s tweets remain vague over where his future lies, with contract talks still not any closer to a conclusion.
