Walcott 'excited' by Ozil's arrival

Theo Walcott says he's 'excited' by Mesut Ozil's arrival at Arsenal, after his £42.4m signing from Real Madrid.

The Gunners smashed their transfer record in signing the German playmaker and Walcott is relishing the prospect of playing alongside him.

The 24-year-old Arsenal and England forward played against Ozil for England Under-21s and said "he showed his qualities then and he has showed them ever since".
