Stephan Lichtsteiner is not sure if he will still be at the Arsenal next season, despite talks for a new contract.
The 35-year-old joined Arsenal from Juventus with a free transfer last summer, signing a one-year contract with the Emirates, and this season he has collected 21 appearances in all competitions.
The talks began because of a contract extension, but Lichtsteiner admits that he could regularly seek first-team football elsewhere to give him the best chance of remaining on the Swiss team before a possible Euro 2020 appearance.
"It will take time, the fact of playing in a top-level club at the age of 35 says enough: there have been speeches [with Arsenal]. We need to see if it fits both sides, "he told Neue Zurcher Zeitung.
"The Arsenal is a great club, I feel very happy, but I want to play regularly with regards to the European Championships.
"This year was fine, but if the coach says it doesn't matter to me anymore, I have to worry."
