Walcott would welcome is the chance to play a more central role next season.
He told The Sun: "I want to play up front a bit more. I was signed as a striker and I haven't forgotten how to play there.
"It's difficult to get involved when you're out on the wing, especially if you make a slow start and don't get an early touch.
"But hopefully the boss has seen a bit more of my game coming out with goals and assists.
"With me being quick I can attract opponents and create more space for others.
"I'm not saying I'm going to win everything for Arsenal playing as a striker but I think I've developed and want to play up front."
