Walcott eagerly anticipating Arsenal's return to Asia

Arsenal winger Theo Walcott admits he cannot wait to get back to Asia.

The Gunners are set to return to the Far East with this year's pre-season tour of Malaysia, China and Hong Kong just a week away and Walcott is excited about seeing the passionate Asian fans of the North London club.

"The fans were unreal. I could hear them chanting our names every morning , they would call for different players and see if they would come out and look over the balcony. It was fantastic," he told Arsenal Player.

"[The Asian culture] is very different. They are so helpful, very happy, very generous. It was one of those experiences you need to see it for yourself.

"We went there last year and we're doing it again, and I am looking forward to every moment of it."
