Theo Walcott and Santi Cazorla have committed to Arsenal by signing new contracts with the club.
Walcott, who is Arsenal’s longest-serving first-team player, ends speculation over his future after he had previously been linked with a move to Liverpool.
Cazorla has been the subject of reported interest from Atletico Madrid, but the attacking midfielder has opted against a return to La Liga, with Arsenal announcing both contract extensions via their official website on Friday.
Manager Arsene Wenger is thrilled to have secured the services of two key players.
“We’re delighted to have extended the contracts of Santi and Theo. Both are top quality players who are hugely important and influential to our squad,” said the Frenchman.
“As well as their huge contributions on the pitch, they both have a great deal of experience and are very popular off the pitch.
“We’re very pleased with them both signing contract extensions, as it provides our squad with further stability of quality.”
