Fab endorsement alerts Barca over Arsenal winger

Former Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas has alerted manager Pep Guardiola over the abilities of winger Theo Walcott.

The England international has been linked with a move to the Nou Camp in recent weeks, with contact talks continuing to stall at the Emirates.

Whilst Walcott admitted he's hoping to open up further discussions with the club soon, his current deal expires in 2013, and Fabregas thinks the 22-year-old has improved immensely.

"Walcott, more than a player, is a sprinter, he is an explosive footballer who has an incredible change of pace," said Fabregas.

"When he arrived at Arsenal he lacked that ability to make the right decisions – when he should take someone on or when he should pass – but he has improved a lot."

The Spanish international left the Gunners for the Nou Camp during the summer transfer window in August, and made a blistering start to life in La Liga before suffering an injury.

Arsenal sorely missed their skipper after his departure, stuttering to their worst start in over 50 years.

However, the tide appears to be turning in north London, thanks in part to the form of Walcott alongside Robin Van Persie, and Arsenal have moved up into the top ten of the Barclays Premier League table.

Keeping both players will be imperative as to the future success of the club, and stopping the Barca boss from taking Walcott from Arsenal is a key task for the club.
