Walcott agent denies Juventus contact

BY foxsports • October 7, 2011

Juventus has not been in touch over a potential swoop for Arsenal winger Theo Walcott, according to his agent.

Speculation has surfaced linking the Serie A giant with 22-year-old Walcott, who is out of contract at the Emirates Stadium in the summer of 2013.

However the England international's agent, Colin Gordon, has poured cold water on the rumours.

He told calciomercato.it: "Juventus have never called us. We have not received calls from Italy recently."

Walcott, who arrived in North London from Southampton as a teenager in 2006, is thought to be in talks with the Gunners over extending his current deal.

However, the signing of starlet Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain means his regular spot in the team is under threat.

Gordon admits he does not know where Walcott will be plying his trade next year.

Asked if the winger will stay at Arsenal, he added: "We'll see. I don't know what will happen.
