After he scored the fifth goal against London Rivals Tottenham Hotspur yesterday, young Theo Walcott has told the media that he wants a chance down the middle to prove that he can be the clubs number one striker.
Speaking to Talk Sport he said: I’ve always believed I was a striker,” he told Stan on Call Collymore.
“The boss gave me five minutes at the end there and I managed to grab a goal which was great. But when you’ve got someone like Olivier [Giroud] who is playing well there’s no need to change a winning team.
“My time will come, I’ve just got to be patient, but like a say, I want to play upfront, that’s my best position”
Walcott has now scored nine goals in all competitions for the Gunners and leads the clubs scoring charts this term, so you would imagine that boss Arsene Wenger would give the young man a decent chance to prove to all of us what he can do down the middle.
However, we all know that Wenger will not do that and Walcott will probably not get his chance anytime soon, because his boss likes to make a point that it is his way, and only his way.
The problem with that is we could in fact lose the flying forward when the transfer window opens in January, because he wants the opportunity of being an out-and-out striker and if he stays in London for the foreseeable future, he will not get that chance he so desperately wants and he knows that if he moves, he may just get his wish.
