Theo Walcott has admitted that he's excited for the arrival of German international Mesut Ozil to Arsenal.

The north London outfit smashed their transfer record with the £42.5 million signing of Ozil last night and Walcott believes the star will be a great addition to the team.

Walcott, who is currently on international duty with England, could get his first chance to play alongside the playmaker when the Gunners travel to Paolo Di Canio's Sunderland side on September 14.

Speaking to Sky Sports News, the England star stated: "It is very exciting. I played against him for the Under 21s when we lost 4-0 and he showed his qualities then and he has showed them throughout many years now for his club and country.

"He's been a great addition and I am personally looking forward to playing with him. I am really excited to play with him."

The 24-year-old also admitted that he enjoyed the transfer deadline day, as he continued by stating: "Everyone was glued to their TVs - it was quite exciting.

"It's something that isn't pleasant for players because it's a difficult time, but I am glad everyone was very happy with their moves and now can just focus on their clubs and get down to business."

The Arsenal star is currently preparing for England's World Cup qualifier with Moldova, which will take place at Wembley on Friday.

Roy Hodgson's side then travel to Ukraine next Tuesday for another crunch qualifier and Walcott will be hoping to play a key role in the two games.
