Walcott insists he will be watching the club’s transfer activity this summer, especially to see if they can retain their star players. With the likes of Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri linked with moves and Walcott believes it is imperative their key man remain, with Wenger also expressing that he will be doing all he can to retain the services of his top players.
“We play great football but we might need a bigger squad,” said Walcott. “We also need to keep hold of our best players.
“The boss has said that he is going to spend as well and add to the team. That will be crucial.
“I will be very keen to see who comes and goes. As a team last season it was disappointing.
“We need to move that step closer and maybe should have done a lot better in the last stretch.

“There are a lot of teams like Manchester City and Liverpool coming into the frame now. It is not going to be an easy Premier League.
“We need to concentrate on the future and hopefully it is going to be bright for us next season.”
Right on the money Theo, lets hope Wenger’s keeping busy while in Asia racking up that phone bill. Get Juan Mata Wenger!
