Arsenal attacker Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has urged Arsene Wenger to change his position.
The 23-year-old revealed he enjoys playing more in the central position after getting the chance to do so for his country during training last week.
“Given the opportunity, I do enjoy playing in central midfield and last week in training with England I was playing more centrally. I really enjoyed that,” he told the Evening Standard.
“At the moment, the general dynamic at Arsenal is that we have got a lot of central midfielders who are more specialists in that position and out of that group of players,” he added.
“If you were going to put me in there, I’d be the one who stood out as someone who could play on the wing.
“I see myself more as a winger for Arsenal as a result. Mesut Ozil, Santi Cazorla, Francis Coquelin, Granit Xhaka, who has just come in, Jack Wilshere, when he’s back, Mohamed Elneny and Aaron Ramsey, when he’s fit.
“They are all big players for us and out-and-out central midfielders, so I am more focused on playing wide and adding what I can out there for now.”
The England international further said the reason he didn’t push for a more central role at Arsenal is because of the abundance of talent the Gunners already have in the middle of the park.
