Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger believes Theo Walcott will sign a new contract with the club by 31 January.
The 23-year-old striker is in the final six months of his deal and could leave on a free transfer in the summer.
But when asked if Walcott will sign before the end of the month, Wenger said: “Yes. We’re on a good road.”
The Frenchman added: “I am optimistic we will get to a happy conclusion. I was optimistic last week but I’m a bit more optimistic this week.
