Theo Walcott reveals that he is hoping to appear more as a striker for Arsenal next season and admits that he wants to form a partnership with Robin van Persie.

Theo Walcott has admitted that he is eager to play as a striker for Arsenal in the near future.

The 23-year-old has appeared for the Gunners mainly as a winger but claims that he is hoping to form a partnership with Robin van Persie.

"You don't want to change the formation at this stage when you are fighting for third," he said.

"I am not the sort of player who likes to tell the manager I want to play up front and argue why it isn't happening. You can't change the system now but hopefully it'll happen next year.

"I love scoring goals — that's what I want to do. To play with Robin up front would be a dream. We link well together and I think we could form a great partnership."

Arsenal are currently third in the Premier League following their 3-0 victory against Wolverhampton Wanderers.
