A deal to keep England forward Theo Walcott at Arsenal beyond the summer of 2016 could be a slow process, admits manager Arsene Wenger.
Wenger revealed the former Southampton player was “difficult to convince” before he signed his previous contract, a three-and-a-half-year deal in 2013.
Walcott, 25, has made just four starts this season due to a knee injury.
“We have started very early with him,” said Wenger. “He is very quick on the pitch, but off the pitch not always.”
