Arsène Wenger says the time is not quite right for Theo Walcott to play through the middle for Arsenal.

Walcott is keen to try his luck in a central role but, for now, he has been stationed on the right of Wenger’s front three.  The Frenchman has plenty of options up front but he says the England international will get his opportunity eventually.

“I have as well other players who can play in this role - Chamakh, Park, Van Persie, Gervinho,” said Wenger.

“Walcott at the moment is for me suited to play on the flank. But he will later certainly move inside.”
