Walcott deal is close - Wenger.

ARSENE Wenger has said Theo Walcott is likely to pen a new deal at Arsenal very soon.

Walcott, 26, hit the only goal of the game as Arsenal beat Wolfsburg 1-0 to secure Emirates Cup success for the Gunners for the first time since 2010.

His future at Arsenal had again been questioned but Wenger now expects him to sign a new contract and - with the Frenchman adamant he does not need to add a striker - believes Walcott can produce the goods.

"We're getting closer and closer. Hopefully we can finalise it very soon," he said when asked about a Walcott deal.
