Theo Walcott believes the attacking options currently available at Arsenal are even better than they were when he first joined the club in 2006, according to the Metro.
The 25-year-old joined the club back in 2006, and insists that the club are in a better position now than they were nine years ago.
Despite having the likes of Dennis Bergkamp, Robert Pires, and Thierry Henry in the side, the England international believes the squad as a whole is stronger now; although he admits they are yet to prove it.
“When I came, it was Pires and Ljungberg, Bergkamp, Thierry and [Jose Antonio] Reyes – that’s some attacking force as well. I think this squad probably does beat it, but we need to prove it first,” he said.
“[When] we go and achieve a little bit more than winning the FA Cup, then I think we can stand up and say this is the best attacking line up we’ve ever had.”
With players like Alexis Sanchez and Santi Cazorla performing out of their skin at the moment, we undeniably have a fantastic attacking force. To claim that we are stronger now than when we had Bergkamp and Henry however, is bold to say the least.
The future has been growing brighter at the club recently, but as Walcott says we need to start showing just what we are capable of.
