Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud has admitted that he may consider a move away from the club if he is not given more playing time next season.

The Frenchman started just 11 league games last term and, although he scored 12 goals, he fell further down Arsene Wenger’s priorities in favour of Alexis Sanchez.

Now Giroud, who assisted Aaron Ramsey’s FA Cup Final-winning goal, feels that it might be time for him to consider his future.

"I'll talk to the coach," Giroud told The Times.

"I had limited playing time but, at some point, there are things I will not be satisfied with — another year with such low playing time.

“It will be necessary to think with my family and advisers."

However, the 30-year-old still has things he wants to achieve with the club.

"I still have three years with Arsenal, so my future is for now with Arsenal,” he continued.

“I feel good, I want to win the championship of England.

“Afterwards, I do not know what my near future will be."
