Ahead of today's friendly in China against Hangzhou, he vowed fans will see him 'flying' - if he stays free of injury.
But Walcott said: "I hope I'll move inside. It just depends on the players the boss brings in.
"I was signed as a striker, I want to play up front. I've done my trade out on the wing. A lot of people forget I'm not a winger.
"I see myself as a striker but if I get played up front it will take me a few games to get used it because I haven't played there for about five years.
"I've done a fairly good job on the wing for Arsenal. For this team I'll play anywhere but hopefully the fans will start seeing me up front more."
