Theo Walcott refused to be drawn on the speculation about his future at Arsenal beyond the summer.

The England international’s situation at Emirates Stadium has been a source of uncertainty in recent weeks after a frustrating season for the forward.

Walcott has been limited to just three Premier League starts for Arsene Wenger’s men this season after making his return from a knee injury earlier in the campaign.

The 26-year-old has been touted as a potential target for Liverpool in recent weeks as Brendan Rodgers looks to bolster his squad at Anfield.

And Walcott refused to give any assurances about his future after Arsenal’s 1-1 draw with Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

Walcott told the London Evening Standard: “No, I can’t give you an update on the contract situation.

“I just want to continue playing my football and we will see where it takes me at the end of the season.

“Of course [it has been frustrating]. Any player wants to play. I want to play. I have been out for a long time. The manager was patient, I have been patient myself.”

Walcott’s current Arsenal contract is due to expire in the summer of 2016.

He will be hoping to feature when Arsenal host Sunderland in the Premier League at Emirates Stadium on Wednesday evening.
