But Wenger is adamant that Walcott's current absence from the starting line-up is due to illness and nothing more.

"I will make a decision on when I know how fit he feels, this is a digestive problem," said Wenger.

"He has been sick and did not train, so we will see how he is.

"It is nothing linked to his contract at all, it's because I have played other players, simple as that. We started the season well, he was injured too.

"He played 40 minutes on Saturday, you can't say he's not played."
