Luke Freeman believes he is getting better and better in his new position.

The young forward scored five goals in nine starts last season for Neil Banfield’s reserve side and is now learning a different role on the left flank.

Freeman thinks versatility on the football pitch is a useful weapon in any player’s armoury and he is settling in well.

“If you can play in other positions it is a good thing to have," he told Arsenal Player.

“I am playing a different position this year out wide instead of as a centre forward. That’s new and I am learning but also really enjoying it.

“I used to prefer it [as a main striker]. Now I'm getting more familiar with the left-sided position I quite like that too but I'm just happy to play really.

“I'm happy with my own form at the moment but I know there's always room for improvement. There are a few things I need to sharpen up and get better at but overall I'm happy.”

The full interview with Luke is now available on Arsenal Player.
