Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has insisted that he wants Theo Walcott to stay put at the club, as reported by the Evening Standard.
The England international has been linked with an exit from Arsenal in recent times, with former club Southampton reportedly keen on re-signing him in January.
I do not want Theo to move on. His time in the Premier League will come.
This is apparently due to the lack of first-team game time Walcott is currently receiving at Arsenal, with him only really starting in the Carabao Cup and the Europa League as of late.
At the moment he has got less minutes in the Premier League than other competitions.
However, Wenger is adamant that he wants to keep hold of Walcott, and is keen to give him his chance to impress in the top flight soon.
Walcott has struggled to hit form this season, and has seen himself on the bench in large parts so far.
Despite this though, Wenger evidently holds Walcott in high regard, and will look to resist any approaches for the attacker in January if he is in demand.
