Theo Walcott hailed fellow Arsenal team-mate Santi Cazorla as one of the ‘best player in the Premier League’.
The two players signed new contracts with the club last week, keeping them in North London for at least three season each.
Walcott reckons his Spanish pal is ‘blessed’ and the England international can not wait to form a deadly partnership with him next term.
Walcott told Arsenal’s official website: “My little buddy Santi! Looking at his stats, assist-wise he has been among the best in the Premier League for the last four years. Having him in the team is great.
