There has been another twist to the speculations surrounding the future of Theo Walcott and Bacary Sagna, after their names have been particularly found missing in Arsenal’s yearly calendar for 2013.
Walcott’s contract is nearing its expiry date and as such has been subject of transfer talk recently.
The England international has been severely linked with move away from The Emirates, with rivals Chelsea, Manchester City, Liverpool and Italian giants Juventus cited as possible destinations.
Similarly, Sagna has a year-and-a-half left on his existing deal at Arsenal and has yet to have a talk about extending his stay with Arsene Wenger.
The solid French full-back revealed his fury over the sales of Robin van Persie and Alex Song sales in the summer when he returned from a long-term injury in October.
The 29-year-old has had his Arsenal future in doubt ever since he made the comment, with Inter Milan hotly tipped to sign him in the near future.
The omissions of the duo from the club’s official calendar have gone to cast more doubts on the possibility of them remaining at Arsenal longer than their present contracts.
Such exclusion is best interpreted as a ‘hint’, which explains why the fans shouldn’t expect to see them around for the entirety of 2013.
