Former Arsenal forward Theo Walcott has revealed Bukayo Saka’s best position.

Walcott, who played for Arsenal and England, said Saka’s best position is as a right-winger.

This was after England boss, Gareth Southgate played the youngster as a wing-back for England against Italy in the Nations League last week.

During the 1-0 defeat to Italy, Saka looked lost as a right-back and often tried to join in the attack rather than having to do defensive duties.

Walcott claimed that the best position for the England international is as a winger.

“Saka is obviously playing wing-back as well. He has not played in that role at Arsenal. I like him as a right winger. I like him as that.”

Saka has been in impressive form for Mikel Arteta’s side this season and has been predominantly used as a right winger.
