Arsenal winger Theo Walcott has given the biggest hint yet that he sees his future at the North London club. Theo has revealed that he hopes to play up front with Robin van Persie next season, which will give Arsenal fans hope that both players will be staying for the next season at least.
Walcott explained, “You don’t want to change the formation at this stage when you are fighting for third. People forget I am a striker and I’m learning the right-wing trade more and more. I want to play up front but I am not the sort of player to play up there on my own.”
He added, “I need a big man with me. That’s not the way we play at Arsenal so we’ll see. I am not the sort of player who likes to tell the manager I want to play up front and argue why it isn’t happening. You can’t change the system now but hopefully it’ll happen next year.”
Theo continued, “I love scoring goals — that’s what I want to do. To play with Robin up front would be a dream. We link well together and I think we could form a great partnership.”
