Podolski says his role has to change.
Lukas Podolski has admitted that he is currently unhappy at Arsenal and that if something doesn’t change soon he may have to consider his options in the January transfer window.
The 2014 World Cup winner has struggled to break into Arsene Wenger’s starting XI in 2014/15 and has started just one match so far, in the Capital One Cup defeat to Southampton.
Podolski has made just five appearances in all competitions and will be looking to leave the Emirates Stadium in the New Year if things continue.
“I have assessed my position in the team, and it has to change now,” the 29-year-old was quoted by the Mirror.
“Let’s see what happens in the winter. The fact is that I’m not happy with it, that’s clear.”
The Germany international joined the Gunners from FC Cologne in the summer of 2012 and was initially a firm fixture in the team and to date has made 74 appearances for the North London side.
However, with the summer arrival of Alexis Sanchez from FC Barcelona and the presence of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Theo Walcott at the club, Podolski has fallen down the pecking order.
