Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has refused to rule out a change in role for attacking midfielder Alexis Sanchez.
The Gunners failed in their attempts to sign Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy and the Frenchman is taking in consideration the option of deploying the Chile international in a central striker position.
"I think so, yes, [he can play in long-term as central striker]," Wenger told the club's official website.
"I think it is worth it to try as he has the quality to go behind. Honestly he did not have the most convincing game [against Liverpool] - he is one of them who is not completely ready physically.
"We did not dominate the game as much as we would have liked in midfield and he suffered a little bit from that as well. But on the flanks he uses a lot of energy by chasing back and I would like to use his energy sometimes a bit more efficiently by going behind the defenders as he is a good finisher.
"He has played centre forward at Barcelona.
He has similar qualities [to Luis Suarez] and he has a good timing to run behind the defenders. His run through in the first half [against Liverpool], when Monreal gave him the ball, he was just offside, by a fraction.
"Let's see. It is interesting to see how well he copes there. He is technically top."
