Theo Walcott: Danny Welbeck fits perfectly into Arsenal


Arsenal striker Theo Walcott believes new team-mate Danny Welbeck should be more selfish in front of goal.

The former Manchester United man joined the Gunners on the last day of the summer transfer window and Walcott is convinced the striker will be a big asset to manager Arsene Wenger.

"I've worked with Danny for England and we link up very well," Walcott told the club's official website.

"He's another English guy and we've got a good English core now.

"He's going to be better for us than he was at Man United, definitely.

"He'll get more opportunities and he's got a point to prove. I know he's worked hard and he's still very young, and I think the boss will enjoy working with him. The fans definitely will - he's very exciting and he's very strong.

"One thing I would tell him to do is be a little more selfish because he's unselfish at times, which isn't a bad thing but I think he'll get more goals if he's more selfish. I'm sure he'll do well for us."

With main striker Olivier Giroud out injured, the Englishman will be expected to deliver straight away for the Gunners.

But Walcott believes the 23-year-old will not find it hard to settle down at his new club.

"He's a very good guy and a very hard worker. Off the pitch he's very relaxed and likes to get involved in anything.

"He's just a very well-spoken young man and he's always eager to improve and spend time with people.

"He fits perfectly into Arsenal, which is such a big family club where everyone's together. He'll fit straight in here."
