Arsenal forward Andrey Arshavin admits he could be forced to consider his future if he does not start playing regularly soon.
The Russian has found himself playing a bit-part role for most of the season at the Emirates with Arshavin admitting his performances have been 'average'.
Arshavin has dropped down the pecking order in Arsene Wenger's plans and he has been linked with a move away from the club.
Big-spending Russians Anzhi Makhachkala have been credited with an interest in Arshavin, but the diminutive attacker insists he has had no contact with Anzhi.
Arshavin admits he is not considering moving to a new club, but that he could be forced to review his options if his first-team chances do not improve.
"Right now I don't think about changing clubs. If I will be benched for a very long time, then such an issue might be relevant," Arshavin told Sport Express.
"I still want to play for 90 minutes, but now I am glued to the bench. I wouldn't like to play for a Russian club other than Zenit [St Petersburg], and there were no contacts with Anzhi Makhachkala."
