Arsenal whiz Walcott wants to be striker

Arsenal whiz Theo Walcott admits he sees his long-term position as striker. He said: “I know I’ll always get comparisons with Thierry (Henry) because I have the No 14 shirt. But he was 22 when he started here — I’ve a while to go before then. “I’d like to play down the middle but, for the moment, I’ll play wherever. The manager thinks I’ll be a striker, which I do as well — but I’ll go anywhere there’s a job needs doing.”
