Theo Walcott
Walcott scored three times as Arsenal defeated Reading in thrilling circumstances.

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has rejected a move for Arsenal's unsettled winger Theo Walcott.

The Reds have lacked a cutting edge in their league campaign thus far, having netted just 13 goals in their 10 league outings, five of which came in the emphatic win over Norwich City.

And with Liverpool set to add to their attacking resources in the January transfer window, Rodgers has dismissed rumours that Walcott, who is out of contract at Arsenal in the summer, interests the Merseysiders.

"There's nothing in it," Rodgers claimed. "He's an Arsenal player."

Luis Suarez, who netted the equaliser for Liverpool in the draw with Newcastle United, has often ploughed a long-furrow in attack, a task made all the more tougher by injury to Fabio Borini, who won't feature again until the New Year with a broken foot.

The Uruguayan has scored nine goals for Liverpool this season, with only Steven Gerrard, Nuri Sahin and Jonjo Shelvy having scored more than once for the club this season.

Walcott's future at Arsenal remains uncertain with the 23 year old still to sign a contract extension at the Emirates Stadium.

The two parties must agree terms on a new deal before the New Year to prevent Walcott discussing terms with other rival clubs, and should he stay at the club beyond the January transfer window, could be allowed to leave for a nominal fee.

A sticking point in Walcott's new deal surrounds Arsene Wenger's insistence to play him in a wide right position as oppose to a favoured central role.

Wenger's has a plethora of options in the centre, with Olivier Giroud, Lukas Podolski and Gervinho all fighting for the one birth in attack.

However, Walcott proved himself to be just as clinical in the middle of a three-man attack during the League Cup tie against Reading, where the England international's hat-trick helped galvanise an Arsenal comeback.

But should a deal not be struck before January, rival clubs will be free to speak to Walcott, and The Gunners will surely fear that should they not complete a deal before then, the winger's head, despite Liverpool denying their interest, will surely be turned.
