Arsene Wenger: This Arsenal star will play an important role for Arsenal this season


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes striker Theo Walcott will this campaign have a strong season at the Emirates.

The Englishman suffered a number of injuries last season as he struggled for form.

But he is expected to be a key member of the Frenchman's squad this season especially since the Gunners are yet to add a new striker during the summer transfer window.

"I've said many times that we will get a strong season from Theo Walcott because he got hit hard and I saw how he responded," Wenger told Arsenal Player.

"He went through a very tough time not being at the Euros with England, and I I observed him, saw how he responded and I am convinced that he will have a great season.

"We had a good combination with him on the right and Alexis up front.

"[Alex Iwobi?] He fights for his place like everybody. We have a strong but reasonable squad.

"We have to show that we are a united squad as well throughout the whole season and that will make a big difference because everyone will get the chance to play.

"At the moment it's Alex but maybe in October it will be someone else."
