Theo Walcott

Theo Walcott | Arsenal & England Wonderkid

Barcelona defender Thomas Vermaelen endured a nightmare 12 months following his move to the Spanish club.

Theo Walcott managed to once again hit the headlines after performing exceptionally well in the FA Cup final against Aston Villa.

Theo Walcott has a contract with Arsenal that expires in 2016 and negotiations concerning how long he will stay at the Premier League have started. On January of 2006, Walcott completed his move from Southampton to Arsenal and ever since then he has been performing at the Emirates Stadium where he has made over 200 appearances for the Premier League club.

Arsene Wenger has concerns that Arsenal intended to offer winger Theo Walcott a new contract despite concerns that the England international may finally decide to leave the club.

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has come out in praise of defender Kieran Gibbs after the England international has put in some impressive performances in recent times.

It has often been held thatGibbs is a shadow of some of the former Arsenal left back, a list that includes Ashley Cole. The 25-year-old is no longer the youngster who can be allowed to commit a few mistakes in the game. He now joins the Legion of experienced players in the Arsenal team. It is this experience, which has been acquired over the years, that seems to be helping the player.

Arsene Wenger says that winger Theo Walcott needs at least two months before he can be at his lethal best.

The England international recently returned from yet another long-term injury, which has kept him out for almost a year. Walcott has not started a match since January last year when he featured against Swansea. He suffered a cruciate ligament injury in the FA Cup match against Tottenham. It was widely expected that he would return just in time for the start of this campaign, but his recovery has taken longer than expected.

Arsene Wenger has confirmed that the wait is almost over and Theo Walcott is only a few days away from making his long awaited return to the pitch after the injury that he picked up in January when playing a FA Cup match against Tottenham Hotspurs.
Theo Walcott has missed over 9 months of action as he has had to recover and stay on the sidelines of Arsenal as he watched them playing Premier League matches week after week but not being able to help inside of the pitch besides just managing to cheer them on.

There is someone in the Arsenal squad now who is even faster than Theo Walcott. It’s Hector Bellerin, the 19-year old defender.

Walcott himself disclosed that while interacting with his fans on a social networking site the other day.

As per Walcott, Bellerin, who belongs to Spain, recently completed a 40-metre sprint in lesser time than him.
Somebody had actually asked Walcott who, he thinks, would come first if a sprint race takes place between him and his former teammate and France legend Thierry Henry.

Arsenal winger Theo Walcott, who spent the majority of last season on the sidelines, has said that he is very much looking forward to playing along with the club’s new signing, Alexis Sanchez. After several years of playing catch-up with the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City the transfer market, Arsenal have finally started spending money in the last two transfer windows. This helped the club in the trophy drought that started in 2005 with the FA Cup last season. They have managed to improve the squad even further after bringing in Sanchez from Barcelona for £ 30 million.

Theo Walcott’s recovery seems to be on track. The 25-year old forward is all set to be back for his team Arsenal at the start of the 2014-15 Season.

Walcott had got injured severely while representing the Gunners in a FA Cup match against Tottenham Hotspur earlier this year. Not only did that injury rule him out of the remaining part of the Premier League, it also ensured that he wouldn’t feature for the Three Lions in the FIFA World Cup 2014.
