Theo Walcott will hold talks over his future with Arsenal in the next two weeks, according to Sky sources.

The 26-year-old, a reported target for Premier League rivals Liverpool, has one year remaining on his current deal at the Emirates.

Walcott, who has scored 77 goals in 203 appearances since joining from Southampton in the summer of 2006, has been a peripheral figure at Arsenal this season, with just three Premier League starts among 13 appearances in all competitions.

Earlier this season, the England winger denied manager Arsene Wenger's claims that initial talks had been held, stressing there had been 'no bust-up as he continued to concentrate on returning from a long-term knee injury'.
