Metro have managed to get Arsenal fans looking up with smiles on their faces here in the Football Transfer Tavern, after claiming that Arsene Wenger is prepared to back Theo Walcott as a forward.
Now as one of our punters notes, the creative star has looked impressive up top this term, and some fans would even rather have him instead of Olivier Giroud, and at times we have to agree.
Seeing that Wenger is willing to offer support to Walcott is something that we think will only help the player in his career and ensure that he has the confidence and playing time to reach his full potential.
Our resident Arsenal fans feel that Walcott is an amazing player and should have the role through the middle instead of Giroud!
