Walcott: Arsenal have made statement with Ozil deal

Theo Walcott feels Arsenal made a statement with their capture of Mesut Ozil.

Ozil, 24, completed a £43million switch from Real Madrid on transfer deadline day as Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger finally landed an addition of supreme quality.

"It definitely shows a statement that we are ready to step up," said Walcott.

"We had a disappointing start to the season, but we have bounced back (with the win over Tottenham) and it is looking fantastic now.

"With the likes of Ozil joining the club, it is only going to boost everyone."
