Tomas Rosicky has admitted there are "questions marks" surrounding his future at Arsenal, but insisted he wants to spend the rest of his playing days at Emirates Stadium.
The veteran Czech Republic midfielder's current contract expires in the summer and he is keen to renew and extend his career with the Gunners into an eighth year.
However, Arsene Wenger's policy of usually offering players over 30 only a one-year deal could spell the end of Rosicky's time at Arsenal and he admitted there were places he would like to go if he could not get his first wish to stay a Gunner.
"I would like to carry on but there are a few question marks. I would say within a few weeks we will know more," he said to Czezh website isport.blesk.cz.
"If the day comes and I leave Arsenal, then I will be surely considering a move to play on a different continent.
"If it was possible, I would love to end my career at Arsenal, which is something I have said many times before.
"If I should leave, however, then I would be tempted to play in the USA. Football has been on the rise there and I'm interested in trying a different style of life.
"By that, I'm not ruling out a return to Sparta Prague, though."
Rosicky joined Arsenal in 2006 six from Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund for an undisclosed fee. He was nicknamed 'Little Mozart' during his time at the Westfalenstadion, such was his ability to orchestrate proceedings.
The 33-year-old has been in impressive form over the last couple of seasons after overcoming two years of demoralising injury problems, which had many questioning whether he would play for the club again.
