Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger is hoping England internationals Theo Walcott and Jack Wilshere can have a big impact in his side next season.

The Gunners duo both missed parts of the 2014/15 campaign due to injuries, but contributed to the team towards the end of the campaign as they retained the FA Cup.

However, the French boss is hoping both Wilshere and Walcott have a good season next term, as he looks to 'keep them fit'.

“The best way to strengthen other areas of the team is to get the players who did not play a lot last year and keep them fit,” Wenger told Arsenal Player.

“Walcott basically did not play until the end of the season, Wilshere has not played many games. Those two were very convincing at the end of the season so I hope that this season we can benefit from their participation and competitiveness.

“We lost Ozil and Giroud for long periods last year and they contributed a lot in the second part of the season. Let’s hope all these players will be fit and available.

“After, if we can still add some quality, we will do it.”
