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."
