Arsene Wenger is of the mind that Theo Walcott is yet to reach his full potential.
Walcott scored 14 goals back in 2012/13 season, but has underperformed in consequent seasons, scoring five goals in the last two seasons.
It has been suggested Arsenal might try to reshuffle the squad following a disappointing campaign, but Wenger denies so.
“I like that we live in a society where people always want new faces and new names,” he told the club’s official website.
“But we forget sometimes the loyalty, cohesion and the long-term phase that is needed in a player to be successful at the club. You need players through the generations and I’m very pleased with him.
“He’s been here for 10 years, that shows as well that he loves Arsenal and I’m convinced he will give us much more in the next five years than the last five.
“Because he is a player who is always moving forward and trying to do better. He has a very positive attitude.”
