However, Wilshere was selected further forward for the Gunners against Manchester City on Saturday, and scored as they drew 2-2 at the Emirates Stadium.
The Mirror quotes Wilshere as saying: "Naturally, I want to go forward more.
"You saw with England that sometimes I lost a bit of concentration when I do go forward. But in our formation it's nice to play forward and in the England one it's different. I'm happy to play either.
"In the formation we play [at Arsenal], I should be scoring more goals. We play with one holding and two going forward and I'm one who gets forward. Hopefully that will be one of many."
