Lukas Podolski has suggested that he is considering his future with Arsenal, having found first team opportunities with the north London club limited since the start of the new season, as reported by the Daily Express.
The World Cup winner has made only two appearances from the bench in the Premier League this campaign, and his only start came in the League Cup game against Southampton, which the Gunners lost 2-1 at home.
Podolski was repeatedly linked with a move away in the summer, but it never came to fruition.
Despite previous statements, Podolski has now admitted that he could yet be on his way out of the club.
He said: “I am a full blooded player, a street player and I love competition. If I don’t have this competition every weekend then a change must occur.
“We will have to see. But it is certainly something one has to think about.”
Podolski has been a consistent feature in the German national side, winning a staggering 118 caps, but has never really imposed himself on a domestic level.
A move to Bayern Munich in 2006, for example, saw him struggle to put together form, and Arsenal have never seen the best of him on a consistent basis.
