Podolski open to a departure from the Emirates.
Lukas Podolski has admitted he could leave Arsenal in the January transfer window after finding game time hard to come by this season.
Bar playing 90 minutes in the Capital One Cup defeat to Southampton the Germany international has managed just seven substitute appearances in all competitions, totaling to 79 minutes of game time.
This has understandably frustrated Podolski, who has revealed whilst on international duty that unless the situation changes he will looking to other options in the New Year.
“Of course I am not happy with my situation right now,” the 29-year-old was quoted by the Mirror.
“I can’t be satisfied with that [his lack of action]. We’ll see what happens in January.”
Podolski joined the Gunners in the summer of 2012 and was initially a firm fixture in Arsene Wenger’s starting XI, but since the addition of new signings in recent times that situation has changed.
The likes of Santi Cazorla, Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez and even Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are all ahead of the German for a place in the team and the return of Theo Walcott from injury will only exacerbate things for the attacker.
To date Podolski has played 77 games for the North Londoners in all competitions, scoring 29 goals.
