Arsène Wenger accepts Mathieu Flamini may have to leave Arsenal to find first-team football.
The 23-year-old midfielder was quoted this week saying he may seek a move away from Emirates Stadium. His manager is aware of the situation and may acquiesce.
"It's true he's not getting enough games," said Wenger. "I accept that. If you cannot give the guy the number of games he wants then OK.
"He has still played 20 games but it is because he didn't enjoy to play left back or right back. If he had played there, he would have played the whole season."
