The Germany international has been used on the flanks since arriving from Cologne over the summer and has played as a central striker only once - in the first match of the season against Sunderland.
Podolski has seen Theo Walcott impressing for the Gunners as a striker with a hat-trick against Reading and a goal against Schalke on Tuesday, and believes that he too has what it takes to bag the goals for his side as well.
Having played as a striker for Cologne in the past two seasons and scoring 32 goals in the process, the 27-year-old admitted that he prefers to lead the line rather than track back as a winger.
"I'd rather play as a central attacker," he told reporters after Arsenal's 2-2 draw against Schalke.
"On the left I have to do a lot of defensive work, constantly running up and down. I am not a classical winger."
Podolski revealed that he has adapted well to life in the north London club but wants to do better.
"Arsenal was a change, a different country and a new club," he continued.
"I am getting along well, for sure, but I demand more of myself - I want to play even better."
