Former Arsenal and Manchester United star Robin van Persie has suggested he is contemplating quitting Fenerbahce. The 32-year-old striker joined the Turkish club in the summer, but has been frustrated over his lack of playing time in recent weeks.

Van Persie has scored nine goals in 20 league games so far this season. However, the Dutchman is yet to complete 90 minutes in 2016.

"Fenerbahce paid a big transfer fee for me so I want to help the team," the former Arsenal star told Turkish website Fanatik.

"But I cannot contribute as much as I want when I am taken off each game. I cannot be efficient like this. We have to find a solution for this situation."

The former Arsenal player was previously linked with a move away from his current employers in November last year, but officials at Fenerbahce were quick to dismiss rumours of a transfer.

"The news [is] aiming to break our player Van Persie's motivation," read a club statement. "We do not plan to sell Van Persie and he does not want to leave. He is a precious player of the squad and he will keep serving our team."

Van Persie enjoyed the best years of his career in England, scoring 144 times in 280 Premier League games for Arsenal and Manchester United. He is also Holland's all-time leading goalscorer with 50 international goals.
