Lukas Podolski has been nothing more than a squad player this season, playing only 25 minutes of Premier League football thus far.
The 29 year old German forward clearly has a strong affinity to the club but feels it may be time to move on.
Podolski told German station RTL television that he wants first team opportunities and hinted at looking elsewhere to get them.
On the fringes at Arsenal, Podolski 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.”
