The Gunners star has enjoyed a solid start to the season and he has set himself an ambitious target to score at least 10 goals each campaign.
"I've said before that my goalscoring record has never been good enough and that I always want to add more goals," he said.
"You look at the top midfielders in the world like Lampard and Gerrard who were getting 15 or 20 goals a season back in their day.
"I'm not saying I can get that many because they were specialists at that, but I could definitely get into double figures."
