The Wales midfielder was one of the stars of Arsenal's summer tour of Asia and he continued his fine form with a commanding performance in Wednesday's 3-0 win over Fenerbahce in the Champions League.
"I said to Aaron at the start of pre-season that he was looking very sharp, very fit," Walcott told Arsenal Player. "He's worked so hard throughout the whole summer and pre-season, and he wants to show people what he can do.

He's had his injury problems as well but I think this season is definitely going to be Aaron's, definitely."Copyright 2017 The Arsenal Football Club plc.
