Wenger Admits Theo Walcott Arsenal’s First Choice Striker…For The Moment

Reports have emerged claiming that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says Theo Walcott is his first choice striker – for now.

The French tactician has used Olivier Giroud and Walcott up front this season, and Giroud came off the bench to score in the 2-0 win over Bayern Munich in midweek and at Watford last weekend.

But Wenger says England international Walcott is currently the man he wants to lead the line.

“It is always hard,” he said. “They are top players. I consider the form, the game on the day.

“At the end of the season both will have played their share of games but at the moment it is Theo. In a few weeks, it might be Giroud. What is important is that both contribute.”
