Walcott On Track For Arsenal Comeback


Arsenal winger Theo Walcott is confident about making a return to action for the Gunners in February after dislocating his shoulder while training with England before the friendly against Germany in November.

England International Walcott had to undergo surgery on his right shoulder after dislocating it before the clash with Germany in Berlin, but the former Southampton player is confident that he will be back in February and is targeting the Premier League clubs Champions League last-16 tie, which is due to be played on February 24/25th.

This will come as a relief to Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, who said at the time of the injury that he expected 19-year-old Walcott to feature again for the Premiership club in three-months and that the injury was not career threatening. Despite the young Gunner having a history of shoulder problems.

Now Walcott has confirmed that “everything is fine” and that a return for Arsenal in mid-February is a realistic target for his comeback.

“Everything is fine. I am expecting to be back mid-February,” Walcott said.
