Walcott excited by Ozil arrival

Theo Walcott is excited that Arsenal managed to pull off the deadline day signing of Mesut Ozil from Real Madrid.

• Cross: Assessing Arsenal's deals

Walcott, on international duty with England ahead of the World Cup qualifiers against Moldova and Ukraine, said that he had played against Ozil during his time with the England Under-21 squad.

And he believes the arrival of the Germany international is another clear indication that Arsenal are ready to challenge for honours this season.

“I played against him for the Under-21s when we lost 4-0 and he showed his qualities then and he has shown them for many years for club and country,” Walcott said.

“He is a great addition and I am personally looking forward to playing with him. I think it definitely shows a statement that we are ready to step up and Ozil is going to be fantastic for me personally.

“With the amount of the assists he has got, it's a dream for me to see, so I am very excited to see him in the flesh and play with him. I am sure all the Arsenal fans will be looking forward to the Sunderland game.”
