Arsenal speedster Theo Walcott has said that he believes that the club can win the Premier league title this season. It has been a long time since the club last tasted success in this competition. This has led to many believing that Arsenal are no longer the club they once were and it is primarily due to the transfer policy of manager Arsene Wenger. The Frenchman has resisted himself from buying top quality players. Instead, he has purchased young players in the hope of developing them into great players.
The problem with Arsenal over the years has been that the young players, who have developed into great ones, demanded a transfer as soon as they made it big. They did not see the opportunities of winning the title with Arsenal. In the last few years, though, the club has been bringing in experienced players like Lukas Podolski and Oliver Giroud. This season, they have been linked with several big names like Luis Suarez and Gonzalo Higuain. Walcott believes that it will be only a matter of time before the club wins the Premier league once again.
He reckons that they may be able to do it in the coming season itself. Walcott had a brilliant campaign last time around and he will be looking to repeat his exploits.
“We need to remember those moments that we had and make sure we do it from the start, because we could be challenging for anything. We could beat anyone. We want that sort of fear factor, especially at the Emirates. It is quite frustrating at times, because we should have done that at the start of the season. Who knows where we would have been,” said the winger, who managed to get himself top of the Arsenal goalscoring charts last season with 21 goals.
