Aston Villa signing Nicklas Helenius says he can play anywhere across the frontline.
He regards himself more as a ‚ÄėNo.10‚Äô support striker than an out-and-out centre forward, but insists he will gladly play anywhere to be part of Paul Lambert‚Äôs emerging team.
‚ÄúThey see me playing different positions rather than just as a striker,‚ÄĚ said Helenius. ‚ÄúThey think I‚Äôm fast enough to play on the wing and I agree. I‚Äôm also able to play in the hole behind the striker.
‚ÄúPersonally I‚Äôve always seen myself as a player in the hole behind the striker because of my finishing ability outside the area and Villa sees me the same way, as a flexible striker.
‚ÄúBut my main aim is first-team football and I enjoy playing any position.‚ÄĚ
