Walcott has shown since his return from injury that he has what it takes to lead the line at Arsenal, and has been scoring freely when given the chance. He will be hoping to see regular action upfront next season, and is likely to pay a huge part in any success we are hoping to have.
With the season opener almost upon us, it’s great to have this resolved now. We can now focus on toppling Chelsea in the Community Shield this weekend, and getting our Premier League season off to a flying start – unlike last year when our slow start cost us the chance to challenge for the title.
