Arsenal winger Theo Walcott has revealed that he is keen to push himself into a more central role for the club this season, according to reports from the Express.
The 26-year-old is currently being played on a rotation basis with Olivier Giroud after manager Arsene Wenger failed to sign a striker before the close of the transfer window.
Despite being given the chance to start against Newcastle United at the weekend, Walcott failed to capitalize on his opportunity and eventually made way for Giroud to come on.
He admitted that he is hoping to earn a more central role for the Gunners this season, but is also ready to play wherever he is told.
“It’s obviously well documented that I want to play up front but there’s a lot of competition for places here,” he told Arsenal.com.
“I will do my best in any position when I am given the opportunity to play for this club.
“I will always be judged on goals and assists but I feel like I would score a lot of goals up front.”
The England international may be given his preferred role at club level, but he will likely be asked to play down the flank for his national team due to the injuries to both Daniel Sturridge and Danny Welbeck.
