Lichtsteiner wants regular football


Stephan Lichtsteiner wants assurances of regular first-team football before agreeing a new deal at Arsenal.

The 35-year-old moved to the Emirates Stadium on a free transfer from Juventus last summer and has made 21 appearances so far for the Gunners.

Talks over a new deal are ongoing, but he is keen to play regularly as he looks to be part of the Switzerland squad for Euro 2020.

This will need time. The fact that I play at a top club at the age of 35 says enough. There have been talks [with Arsenal]. We have to see if it suits both sides.

“Arsenal is a big club, I feel very happy. But I want to play regularly with regard to Euro 2020.

"It was okay this year. But if the coach says that he no longer counts on me, I have to worry."

Arsenal play Napoli in the Europa League quarter-final first-leg on Thursday, 11 April live on BT Sport on the eir sport pack [kick-off 8pm]. Subscribe here
