Paul Gallagher has appealed to Leicester boss Nigel Pearson to pick him as a striker for future games.
Gallagher, 25, has played more of a utility role since signing for the Foxes in the summer transfer window.
He featured as a winger in the club's 1-0 defeat to Newcastle last time out but believes his best position is up front.
Conceding he will likely have to play out of position from time to time, he admitted a strong desire to play a much more attacking role.
"I think I am most effective playing just off the front man," he told the Leicester Mercury.
"I played there for Plymouth last season and I think I scored five goals in eight games. It went really well.
"I have played on the left and the right, which I don't mind doing because you have to help the team out.
"But I think my main position is as a striker. I think if you look at the goals I have scored in the Championship you will find I got double figures for both Stoke and Plymouth."
