Theo Walcott (credit: IAN KINGTON/AFP/Getty Images) Arsenal pair Theo Walcott and Santi Cazorla have signed new contracts of the new Premier League season.   Walcott, the longest serving player in Arsene Wenger’s squad, has signed a news four-year deal with the Gunners while his Spanish team-mate Cazorla has extended his time at Emirates Stadium by a further two years.   The new deals are a boost to manager Wenger with the new season just a week away.   “Both are top-quality players who are hugely important and influential to our squad,” the Frenchman told the club’s official website.   “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.” Walcott has been with the Gunners nine years, signing from Southampton in 2006. He has made 302 appearances for Arsenal and, despite a frustrating 2014/15 he ended the campaign well.   The England international scored a hat-trick in the final league game of the season, against West Brom and also scored the opening goal as the Gunners won the FA Cup, beating Aston Villa 4-0 at Wembley.   Cazorla also played in that game and had a successful season in midfield, making 53 appearances in total for the side including all but one of the Premier League games.
