Cape Town - Ricardo Rodriguez admits he is facing an uncertain future after Wolfsburg sporting executive Klaus Allofs said it's better that they parted ways.
The Switzerland international is under contract at the Volkswagen Arena until 2019, although he has been linked with a move to Arsenal during the off-season.
Rodriguez has expressed his interest in moving to England's Premier League or Spain's Primera Liga, but is keeping his options open as he waits to see if any potential suitors will activate the €25million release clause in his current deal.
"I don't know where I'll be going, everything's still open," he told Berner Zeitung. "It's also not impossible to continue at Wolfsburg, even though it might be unrealistic right now.
"There are many big clubs. The English clubs have a lot of money, Spain is a great league."
The 23-year-old left-back would jump at the chance to link up with Swiss team-mate Granit Xhaka at the Emirates Stadium after the midfielder recently signed for the Gunners from Monchengladbach.
"That'd be exciting, yes, especially as we'd have already solved the rooming question at Arsenal."
His comments have elicited a response from Allofs, who feels the defender's lack of commitment means he is highly likely to leave the Wolves in the coming months.
"This is no news to us. That's the agreement we struck with Ricardo. When we last talked his plan was clear. He wanted to leave us," Allofs told Kicker.
"A difficult season is behind us. We only need players with a clear mind. If the commitment to Wolfsburg's not there, it's better to part ways."
