Conjecture has suggested Serie A club Juventus are interested in Walcott, who joined Arsenal from Southampton in 2006 and has since made 184 appearances for the Gunners in all competitions, scoring 34 goals.

However, the England international's agent, Colin Gordon, told calciomercato.it: "Juventus have never called us. We have not received calls from Italy recently."

But Gordon was coy when pressed about Walcott's long-term future, with the forward's current contract due to expire in 2013. "We'll see," Gordon said. "I don't know what will happen."
