Arsenal ace Theo Walcott has insisted that he would relish added competition if the Gunners were to make signings in this January transfer market, reports Sky Sports. 

Walcott, who scored Arsenal's final goal in their 2-0 victory over Cardiff City yesterday, believes it will be hard for the club to sign a top player in January, but hopes the club can do business. 

Speaking to reporters, Walcott said: "To be fair that is for the manager to decide if he wants to go out and buy anyone, whoever will come to the club in January, if not it is going to make the club stronger anyway.

"It is always nice to have competition with players coming in, but January is such a difficult period in the transfer market to get players in, especially the top players.

"The boss has already said that he is looking for special players and we have got a lot of special players in that dressing room."

Arsene Wenger's team currently sit top of the Premier League table, just a point in-front of second placed Manchester City and Walcott is adamant the north London outfit have the belief to go all the way in this campaign. 

The England international continued by saying: "If you want to win titles then you have got to go to the end and the thing about this team at the moment is that we never give up.

"Every game that we win the belief gets stronger and stronger."

With the Gunners flying high in the league, their attention will now turn to the FA Cup this weekend. 

Arsenal play host to north London rivals Tottenham at the Emirates and will be hoping to knock Tim Sherwood's side out of the competition when the two sides go head-to-head on Saturday.
