Stephan Lichtsteiner of Arsenal has admitted he considers his future with the club uncertain.
It is Sky Sports who have reported the words of the defender who joined the Gunners on a free transfer from Juventus last year on a 12-month contract; which expires soon.
Lichtsteiner is happy at Arsenal and in north London and would like to remain there, but not at the price of not getting enough game-time. Even though reports spoke of international retirement following last year’s World Cup exploits, where his Switzerland managed to squeeze past the group stages to the round of 16, now he says he has an eye on appearing at Euro 2020. With that in mind, he would be ready to pursue minutes on the pitch away from Arsenal if need be, in order to get a call up for the tournament.
When called upon this season in the absence of Hector Bellerin, the 35-year-old hasn’t impressed, and manager Unai Emery has recently favoured centre-back Shkodran Mustafi at right-back ahead of him.
