Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has no problem following the career of new Arsenal teammate Theo Walcott.

Former Southampton winger Oxlade-Chamberlain's career is almost a mirror image of that of Theo Walcott, who has established himself with Arsenal and England since his £12million move four and a half years ago.

Oxlade-Chamberlain said on Tuesday: "The way I saw Theo when he left Southampton and took off here, it's been really encouraging for me. He's a great player.

"To go on like he has to play for England and score goals for England, and do as well as he has for Arsenal, it definitely gave me confidence and maybe helped my decision a bit more."
