Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says Theo Walcott must be patient over plans to play as a striker.

Walcott has pestered Wenger to play him more centrally which, could allow Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to take over the right-wing berth.

But Wenger said: "There are other players who can play in this role so Walcott at the moment is for me suited to play on the flank.

"Later certainly he will move inside."
