Cape Town - Germany World Cup winner Lukas Podolski has admitted he is unhappy at Arsenal and will look to leave the Emirates come the January transfer window.

Podolski is yet to start for the Gunners in the Premier League this season and has only made three appearances as a substitute.

According to the Daily Star, the 29-year-old was expected to leave the London outfit during the summer, but injury to Olivier Giroud forced Arsenal into reassessing their transfer activity.

Podolski, who made the move to England from FC Köln in 2012, has made 74 appearances for the club scoring 28 times, but insists he is unhappy with his current situation and will look to change clubs if nothing improves.

"I have assessed my position in the team, and it has to change now," he said.

“The fact is that I'm not happy with it, that's clear."
