Podolski: I Want To Play As A Centre Forward For Arsenal

Lukas Podolski has revealed his desire to play more centrally for Arsenal.

Podolski: I Want To Play As A Centre Forward For Arsenal

Since his arrival from Koln in the summer, the forward has generally been deployed on the left wing, with fellow attacker Theo Walcott currently stalling over a new contract after voicing a similar request.

Walcott bagged a hat-trick in the 7-5 Capital One Cup win over Reading from a central position and Podolski is hoping for some opportunities in that role himself sooner rather than later.

Speaking to reporters after the 2-2 draw with Schalke on Tuesday, the German admitted: "I'd rather play as a central attacker.

"On the left I have to do a lot of defensive work, constantly running up and down. I am not a classical winger."

The former Bayern Munich man is happy with how he has adapted to life in England but is expecting to make a bigger impact before long.

"Arsenal was a change, a different country and a new club," he continued.

"I am getting along well, for sure, but I demand more of myself – I want to play even better."
