Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech has taken to Twitter to thank fans for their support after he made his home debut for the club in the Emirates Cup this past weekend.

Cech managed to keep a clean-sheet as the Gunners beat German outfit Wolfsburg by one goal to nil yesterday to help the club claim the pre-season trophy in north London.

And the goalkeeper certainly appears to be settling in nicely with his new club, who will be desperate to overhaul champions Chelsea at the summit of the Premier League next season.

There's no doubt about it, the signing of Cech has given the Gunners the platform to kick on next season after ending last term in third place in England's elite division. 

Cech, then, will expect to start for the Gunners in their first Premier League fixture of the campaign against West Ham on August 9.

Wenger expects Walcott stay

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger expects forward Theo Walcott to commit his future with the club in the near future, reports Sky Sports.

The 26-year-old, who found the back of the net in the club's 1-0 victory over German outfit Wolfsburg yesterday, is now in the final year of his current deal at the Emirates, but it appears that he's set to stay on for the foreseeable future.

Walcott will no doubt be hoping for a key role in attack next term, as he provides competition to Frenchman Olivier Giroud up front.

Future for Szczesny

Wenger has also insisted that goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny has a future at the club despite his impending move to Italian outfit Roma, reports The Guardian. 

After the signing of Cech, the shot-stopper looks set to join the Serie A outfit on loan, but it appears that he could yet be handed a role in north London in the coming years.

Szczesny has endured a tricky time at Arsenal of late, so will no doubt be hoping to get his career back on track at Roma.
