Theo Walcott thinks Robin van Persie should be regarded as one of the best strikers in the world after his recent goalscoring exploits.

The 28-year-old Gunners captain took his calendar year goal tally to 31 league goals in 29 games this weekend with a brace that helped Arsenal see off Norwich. Van Persie's ability to stay clear of injury has enabled the Dutchman to fire in 13 of the club's 25 league goals this season - a run which has put the striker at the top of the Premier League scoring charts.

"Robin is one of the best strikers in the world right now and a great leader too," Walcott told Arsenal's official website.
