has once again reiterated his desire to play up front for The Gunners, following Arsenal’s superb 5-2 victory over Spurs at The Emirates yesterday afternoon.

The 23-year-old continued his fine form yesterday by scoring Arsenal’s fifth and creating the equalizer, and the England international revealed after the game that he would prefer to play up front with the likes of and , but is willing to remain patient for his chance as he believes there is no need to change a winning team.

He told talkSPORT’s ‘Call Collymore’:

‘I’ve always believed I was a striker.

‘The boss gave me five minutes at the end there and I managed to grab a goal which was great. But when you’ve got someone like Olivier [Giroud] who is playing well there’s no need to change a winning team.

‘My time will come, I’ve just got to be patient, but like a say, I want to play upfront, that’s my best position.’

From what I can tell and see from Walcott’s post-match interviews, when he asked about his contract situation, the guy wants to play for Arsenal, and that’s great to see.

Is he a striker or a winger, well that is the question at hand isn’t it? Personally, I think he can be effective in either position. But with Giroud settling and finding the net, it looks like Walcott will have to remain patient I’m afraid.

His time will come, that I am sure of, and has stated that he will play Walcott in the centre-forward role in the future. When this will be, only the Frenchman knows. But hopefully, for Walcott’s and his followers’ sake, it won’t be too long await.

    They need to sign him, they need to pay him. They have a chance with Jenkinson, Chamberlin, Wilshire, and Theo to do something really good for English football. Oops if Gibbs can stay healthy as well to really build a core. They have to stop losing an im[ortant player each season, and to lose Theo at 23 would just be pennywise and pound foolish.

    he cant play on his own upfront.

    he should try going upfront during the game
    and get carzol to cover the right wing and walcott
