Theo Walcott on his return: I haven't put a specific date


Arsenal striker Theo Walcott is unsure when he will return to action for the Gunners.

The Englishman was ruled out for months after suffering a knee injury in January and denied rumours that he will be making his long-awaited comeback at the end of the month against Tottenham Hotspur.

"I haven't put a specific date or looked at a game yet," Walcott told The Sun.

"There were rumours of me coming back for the Spurs game which is definitely not going to happen, that's for sure.

"I'm taking it week by week. It tends to fly by and it's not months anymore, which is a nice feeling."

The 25-year-old was forced out of the World Cup through injury and also had to sit out Arsenal's wins in the FA Cup and Community Shield.

"It's exciting times. What we can build on from the FA Cup win is to attract these great players to the club," Walcott added.

"It will hopefully put Arsenal where we should be: winning trophies."

Walcott also believes that exciting times lie ahead for the Gunners after they completed a number of important signings during the summer transfer window.

"Alexis [Sanchez] has settled in very quickly and Danny [Welbeck] is a good guy," the Englishman said on the new signings.

"I have worked with him for England he is a hard worker.

"He always puts his heart on the line. At times I have thought he needed to be a bit more selfish so I was very happy on Monday night with his England performance.

"That's the one thing he has changed and he will get more goals, unless he sees me in a good position of course!

"I don't know what plans the boss has got but hopefully this will push us on and increase the level of competition. There's a massive buzz around the club.

"When you see the amount of money that has been spent, it has been well documented over the years that we haven't spent as much. But Arsenal are doing it the right way and spending it wisely."
