Arsenal winger Theo Walcott has been impressed by summer signing Gervinho.

Walcott and Gervinho have helped provide ammunition for Robin van Persie's incredible goalscoring run - and the England man says his new team-mate will prove to be a big asset for the team.

"He's been fantastic this season," Walcott told

"Obviously [English football] is totally different to what he's used to playing but now he is playing week in week out in the Premier League, which is very physical, and he is showing his qualities.

"He has still got a lot to learn and he knows that - but you can start to see that Gervinho is going to be the right type of player for Arsenal."
