Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud wants Theo Walcott to stay as a winger.

Giroud reckons he can add to his tally if Walcott is delivering crosses.

Walcott has previously declared that he wants to play through the middle, but Giroud said: “Looking at the goals from last weekend it was another cross from my favourite supplier Theo. The more we play together, the better it is – and Theo always seems able to find me.

“I know in the past Arsenal fans have moaned about the lack of crosses but hopefully my heading ability and height can give other options to the team.”
