The 29-year old German forward is yet to start for the Gunners this season and has featured in just over 30 minutes of Premier League action for the north London club.
Podolski, who started only 14 times in the league last season, admits it is not ideal for him at the Emirates Stadium and may look to move on in January if things don't improve soon.
"I have assessed my position in the team, and it has to change now," he told reporters.
"Let's see what happens in the winter. The fact is that I'm not happy with it, that's clear."
