Arsenal defender Stephan Lichtsteiner has revealed that his focus is to play regular football ahead of the 2020 European Championship.

The 35-year-old has not seen much football at Arsenal for the past one month but the Swiss international star insists that he’s happy at the club.

Stephan Lichtsteiner went on to hint that he could leave the club in search of regular football.

The former Juventus right-back talked about Arsenal and the need for regular football in a chat with media portal Neue Zurcher Zeitung.

Stephan Lichtsteiner became an Arsenal player last summer after joining on a free transfer.

The Swiss international right-back signed for the Gunners as a free agent shortly after the expiration of his contract at Italian Serie A champions Juventus.

He was the first signing of the Unai Emery era at Arsenal.

Unai Emery was appointed the Arsenal manager at the start of the season as a replacement for long-serving boss Arsene Wenger who had resigned at the end of last season despite the fact that he had one year left on his then contract.

Stephan Lichtsteiner has already started the discussions over an extension to the one-year contract he signed at the club upon the request of Unai Emery but the defender could still leave the club in search of regular football.
