Walcott excited by Ozil move

Theo Walcott admits he is 'excited' about the arrival of new signing Mesut Ozil to Arsenal.

Last Updated: 03/09/13 at 17:22 Post Comment

The Gunners smashed their transfer record late on deadline day to sign Ozil from Real Madrid in a £42.5million deal.

Walcott is relishing the opportunity of playing alongside the Germany international and feels the talented playmaker will be an excellent addition to Arsene Wenger's side.

"It is very exciting," Walcott told Sky Sports News. "I played against him for the Under 21s when we lost 4-0 and he showed his qualities then and he has showed them throughout many years now for his club and country.

"He's been a great addition and I am personally looking forward to playing with him. I am really excited to play with him."

Walcott, who is away on international duty with England ahead of their World Cup qualifiers against Moldova and Ukraine, admitted the whole squad were watching the events of a dramatic transfer deadline day unfold on Monday.

"Everyone was glued to their TVs - it was quite exciting," added Walcott.

"It's something that isn't pleasant for players because it's a difficult time, but I am glad everyone was very happy with their moves and now can just focus on their clubs and get down to business."

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
