Arsenal wants Walcott KO compensation

The FA has insured the player and the Gunners are entitled to up to £1.1million to cover a player’s wages.

The 19-year-old is currently on a £30,000 a week deal at the Emirates something that could lead to a £360,000 compensation being paid to the Gunners.

Wenger said: “There should be compensation.

“It’s a bit of a blow as he’s just taking off and it’s an important time.

“I don’t know the circumstances of the injury but accidents happen.”
