Theo Walcott has insisted that he would welcome any new striker that Arsene Wenger is planning to bring to Emirates this month.
Arsenal are in serious injury troubles in terms of strikers, both Olivier Giroud and Nicklas Bendtner are injured currently and Arsenal don’t have any experienced forward, they may give Lukas Podolski that role but they will also be trying to land one or two player for that position.
The league leaders have seen strikers Olivier Giroud and Nicklas Bendtner suffer ankle injuries and reports saying that Fulham’s Dimitar Berbatov is being eyed by Arsenal.
Walcott said that it depends on the manager who will he bring this month, he would welcome any new player because addition to the squad means making the side stronger.
He also said that it is good to have more competition with new players, but winter transfer market is always difficult in terms of buying good players. Wenger has already said that he is trying to bring some new faces in the dressing room.
Arsenal are on top of the table, one point above Manchester City, after winning 2-0 against Cardiff City on New Year's Day. Bendtner and Walcott scored the late goals to secure their win.
Walcott added regarding their title race that they have to play the same game till the end, they never give up and every match makes them stronger.
