Injured star looking forward to playing alongside new signing.
Crocked Arsenal forward Theo Walcott led the welcome party for new signing Alexis Sanchez by claiming that he cannot wait to link up with the Chilean international when he’s finally fully fit, the Daily Star reports.
The former Barca man made his move to the Emirates Stadium on Thursday following weeks of speculation around where his future would lie after the Spaniards confirmed that he would be made available this summer.
His signing is seen as a major statement of intent by manager Arsene Wenger as he bids to turn the Gunners into realistic Champions League and Premier League title contenders after finally ending their terrible trophy drought last season.
And after the announcement that Sanchez would be joining the Gunners, Walcott and several of the side’s other top stars soon followed his lead in greeting the World Cup hero to north London.
What a Signing!!!!! Can not wait and looking forward to playing with Alexis Sanchez!!!!! #COYG
