Walcott wants to emulate Henry

Published Add your comment

Theo Walcott has insisted he wanted to stay at Arsenal and become as big a legend there as Thierry Henry.

Manager Arsene Wenger converted Henry from a winger to Arsenal's all-time leading goalscorer and Walcott, who inherited the Frenchman's number 14 jersey, wants to follow in his footsteps.

He told ESPN: "I want to be an Arsenal legend. Thierry joined the club when he was 22 and I want to become an Arsenal legend like him, playing up front as well, which is a big factor for me. I've played on the right wing and had the opportunity to play up front a bit more so I think it's about time."
