He mainly plays center forward or right winger, although he is often listed as striker. (source)

His last games for Germany he played midfielder as well with Timo Werner or Mario Gomez being the only striker (for example here and here).

It's pretty safe to assume that he'll play on that position in the World Cup as well, but who knows what Joachim Löw got up his sleeve.
