Antonio says he wants to become one of the best right wingers in the Premier League.
Antonio was a big hit at Upton Park last season after moving from Nottingham Forest in the summer transfer window.
However, he was forced out of position for much of the campaign as a series of injuries to the club’s right backs saw him deployed in the position instead.

That is something that has continued this season, with him featuring there in the club’s 2-1 defeat to NK Domzale in the Europa League last week.
It is not somewhere he wants to stay though, saying that he hopes to turn himself into one of the best wingers in the Premier League.
“I’m hoping I can be back in my right position because where I’ve played my whole life,” he told FourFourTwo.
“I’ve never thought or dreamt that I could be played as a defender. Now, hopefully, I can turn myself into one of the best wingers in the Premier League.”

It now remains to be seen whether Antonio will be allowed to play in his more natural right wing position next season.
They have signed Gokhan Tore on loan this summer, and he will also be looking to take up that spot in the team when fit.
With there also still being injuries at right back for the side to contend with, it would not be surprising to see Antonio continuing in the role for the foreseeable future.
