Aaron Ramsey has backed Theo Walcott to have a big season and reach the “100 Club".

The England international has scored 76 times in 302 appearances for the club since joining from Southampton as a 16-year-old in 2006.

Walcott ended the 2014/15 campaign by scoring four times in two matches and Ramsey believes his team-mate will reach new heights this season.

He is a goalscorer - he has a load of goals for Arsenal and I think he can carry that on and maybe get into the 100 Club this year

“He did very well at the end of last year,” Ramsey told Arsenal Player. “He’s had a good pre-season.

“He looks sharp, he looks strong and he can be dangerous.

“He is a goalscorer - he has a load of goals for Arsenal and I think he can carry that on and maybe get into the 100 Club this year.

“He’s a very strong character. He believes in his abilities and he definitely has a lot of qualities to offer.

“He can finish - one of the hardest things to do in football is to put the ball in the back of the net and he’s done it on numerous occasions for Arsenal. Hopefully he can continue doing that.”
