Arsene Wenger has hinted that Theo Walcott still has a future at Arsenal.

The Winger has been restricted to making appearances off the bench since Wenger switched to a three at the back formation and he was heavily linked with leaving the Emirates for first team football in the summer.

However, he opted to stay to fight for his place in Arsenal’s team but is yet to start a Premier League game this season.

He’s only played a major part in the Europa League where he netted a brace against Borisov on Thursday and Wenger has backed him to go on and play a prominent role for Arsenal this season.

Wenger said: “I believe his strength is to score goals. He can score goals, he’s a good finisher.

“He had two or three more chances but as long as the team played well he had plenty of chances.

“He has a good quality, it’s the timing of his runs and the quality of his runs. He goes into areas where he is dangerous.

“You want [strikers] to make the right decision in front of goal.

“Sometimes the right decision is to give the ball and when the right decision is to take your chance, take your chance.

“But overall, all the strikers need to be a little bit selfish.

“I don’t like this word but you do need to believe that you will score.”

Walcott is Arsenal’s longest serving player, having joined the club since 2006. He’ll be hoping he can force his way back into the starting xi this season in order to be a part of the English squad traveling to Russia for the world cup at the end of the season.
