Arsenal legend Ian Wright feels Theo Walcott should be played as striker.

Wright wrote in The Sun: "Theo is still only 22 but now is the time for Wenger to play him up front.

"For years, Wenger has been saying that he sees Theo in a central role but has never done anything about it.

"At the very least, I would like to have seen Wenger experiment in a Carling Cup or FA Cup tie.

"I know Wenger's favoured formation is to have one man up front with two wide players. But as a striker myself, I know Theo would do some major damage."
