KALLSTROM RULED OUT
Arsenal’s only signing of the month of January was Kim Kallstrom as he made his way from Spartak Moscow and arrived to the Premier League but despite not having a busy transfer window like some other teams, Jack Wilshere believes that Arsenal can still win the league despite not having many new arrivals.
“People keep saying we need a new striker but Olivier Giroud has been great and Lukas Podolski can play there. Aaron Ramsey and Santi Cazorla have scored a few. Even I’ve got a couple! We know we can create chances and score goals’’.
“We have to work on our team shape in terms of winning the ball back and getting into better positions. The next two months are really important and if we come out of those unscathed, we will have a real chance.
“It would mean a lot to win something. Everything, to be honest. To win something for the first team would be amazing, not just for us but the fans. I grew up watching Thierry Henry winning everything, the ‘Invincibles’ and all that.
“This season we have a bigger squad. When one goes out another comes in. It has happened many times. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has come back and is looking good. He is like a new signing, going into the last few months of the season. Podolski is getting fitter’’.
Jack Wilshere also has high hopes for England at the upcoming World Cup but he stated that it is not a very good idea to think too far ahead.
“The World Cup is something to look forward to, of course, but you cannot get ahead of yourself. For example, what has happened to Theo Walcott is terrible’’.
Walcott sustained a season ending injury that will leave him not only out for the remainder of the season but for the upcoming World Cup.
