Theo Walcott has vowed to help Olivier Giroud through his recovery following the Arsenal striker’s recent injury.

The France international was ruled out until the new year after suffering a broken tibia bone and requiring surgery in the aftermath of Arsenal’s 2-2 draw with Everton last month.

Walcott is nearing a return to first-team action after missing the second half of last season with a knee ligament injury.

And the England international says he has offered to help the forward in his recovery.

“I’ve been through a long injury myself now so I’ve said to him, ‘If there’s anything down the line you need to talk to me about from the rehab side of it, from the family side, anything, I’m there for you’,” Walcott told Arsenal Player.

“I’m just a phone call away and he comes in anyway in the afternoons so I’m always there to see him.

“It was such an innocuous thing that happened. But you’ve got to think when you get injured that it’s a good opportunity to work on something and Oli’s got all the attributes to [do that].

“He’s a very good athlete and he can be even stronger when he comes back from this, and that’s what I said, which he appreciated. He’s a great guy.”
