35-year-old defender Stephan Lichtsteiner will leave Arsenal this summer when his current contract expires at the end of June.
The Switzerland skipper will leave the Emirates Stadium after just one season having joined the Gunners in June 2018 on a free transfer from Juventus.
“It was a great challenge and experience without a happy end,” said Lichtsteiner.
“We were close to add an important chapter to this amazing club’s history. But to be close is unfortunately not good enough. This is hard to accept. I’m very disappointed. It was our objective to bring Arsenal back on the highest international level and to win trophies. Both belong to this great club.”
Lichtsteiner, who previously for Lille and Lazio before his seven years at Juventus where he won seven Serie A titles made 23 appearances in all competitions, scoring only one goal for the club in the Carabao Cup.
In an Instagram post, Lichtsteiner further noted that: “I wish my team-mates, my coach and his staff, all hard-working employees and all Gunner fans simply the best. I’m confident our team can complete our mission next season! I loved to be a part of this club.”
