Arsenal hat-trick hero Walcott confident agreeing new deal
He said: "Talks are ongoing and I am sure something will be sorted. I've been saying that I want to play up front and I am showing the manager what I can do. I believe I will be a striker and it's about taking the opportunity when I get it.
"I enjoy playing in whatever position but it was just telling the manager to give me the opportunities to play up front.
"I'm not saying I'm always going to play there but it's just showing what I can do. Hopefully, I've opened a few eyes and it's provided a different option."
