Walcott can't wait for Sanchez link-up

Arsenal winger Theo Walcott is looking forward to taking to the field alongside new teammate Alexis Sanchez this season.

Head to Head: Is Mesut Ozil a flop?

The Gunners brought in Sanchez from Barcelona last week for a fee believed to be in the region of 30 million pounds, which would make him the club's second most expensive signing after Mesut Ozil.

And after watching the Chile international impress at the World Cup this summer, Walcott says he cannot wait to team up with him.

"Sanchez is a world-class player and I enjoyed watching him play for Barcelona and for Chile at the World Cup," he told Arsenal's official website.

"He's still very young as well and he is going to show so much pace and power, which we lacked a bit last year. With me and him on the flanks, a lot of teams won't be looking forward to playing Arsenal this year.

"There's a great buzz around the club at the moment. He is a marquee signing and something that the club has pushed on to: first you had Mesut Ozil and now it is Alexis Sanchez. Who knows where it is going to stop?

"It is great to learn from these players, and I cannot wait to play alongside him. I am really looking forward to it."

Walcott is currently working on his fitness after rupturing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in January.

The England international does not want to set a return date just yet, but says he is happy with the progress he has been making.

"The knee is going really well, I am doing some good stuff with the physios and fitness coaches and we have worked really hard throughout the summer," he said.

"Things are looking really good and I have worked very hard for the last five months now.

"The most important thing is getting the strength back and it has pretty much nearly healed -- it is just about building up that stability and strength again.

"It is coming along nicely and I am really pleased."
