Arsenal legend Thierry Henry could barely contain his surprise when asked about Theo Walcott's prospects as a striker this season.
Walcott recently penned a new contract extension at the Emirates Stadium which will keep him there until 2019, and is looking to get more game time as a striker rather than out on the wing in the new season.
The England international was able to do very little during the 2-0 defeat against West Ham earlier today after he came on as a substitute for Francis Coquelin.

Walcott has just 50 Premier League goals for Arsenal in nine full seasons to date, and judging by Henry's reaction his future isn't as a forward.
The Frenchman, who is Arsenal's all-time leading goalscorer, was speaking to Graeme Souness before the game against West Ham today when the former Liverpool boss asked him about Walcott's potential as a striker.
Henry looked briefly stunned as he tried to come up with an answer before delivering his answer, which was lukewarm at best.
As it stands Olivier Giroud is Arsenal's leading forward, although he failed to score when it mattered against the Hammers today. Henry has previously been highly critical of his countryman and believes that Arsene Wenger needs to upgrade if his side are to go on and win their first Premier League crown in ten years.
"I think Giroud is doing extremely well. But can you win the league with him? I wouldn't think so," he said last season.
"He does a job, and he does it ever so well, but you can't win the league. Arsenal were at the top of the league last season, but everyone was saying they are not going win the league.
