England forward Theo Walcott hopes to be able to convince Arsene Wenger to play him as a striker at Arsenal, with his Gunners future still in some doubt.

The 23-year-old England international, whose current deal runs out at the end of the season, has often been utilised on the wing by Wenger, but Walcott hopes to forge a future in a more central role.

He told BBC Sport: "I've been judged, with people saying it's all about money, it's never been that with me. Playing up front is important. It's one of the main factors for me.

"I signed as a striker, I've learnt my trade out on the wing. Hopefully, I'll get to play up front in the next few games."

Walcott will hope to get a chance to impress on Wednesday evening when the Gunners host League One Coventry City in the third round of the Capital One Cup, with Arsenal 1.083 to win the tie, 8.00 to win 3-0 and 2.00 to keep a clean sheet.

Meanwhile, Walcott has offered some hope that he will eventually pen a new contract at the Emirates Stadium, adding: "It's been a slow process. It's not going to happen any time soon.

"My last contract took six months to do. It's one of those things that is frustrating for me. Hopefully it can be sorted."
