Arsène Wenger is happy with his centre-forward options.

The Arsenal manager has rotated three strikers this season, Robin van Persie taking the lion's share of first-team appearances with Marouane Chamakh and Ju Young Park in support.

Chamakh is expected to represent Morocco at the Africa Cup of Nations in January and, at first glance, that would leave Wenger with only two candidates up front. But the Frenchman sees it differently.

"I feel as well that you can count Gervinho and Walcott as strikers," explained Wenger.

"Many times in press conference people ask me why we don’t play Walcott in the middle so he can play there if we need to do it.

"At the moment I have a big squad and we need to keep them all fit and motivated."
