Andrey Arshavin has hinted at disenchantment at Arsenal after describing their past season as "pitiful".
The Russia star could be on a collision course with manager Arsene Wenger after lamenting another trophyless season at the Emirates Stadium.
Arshavin, who scored 11 goals in 37 games for the Gunners last term, has been linked with several moves away from the north London club since the season ended.
"There was nothing special last season for me to think back about. The season was normal - even pitiful," he said.
Speaking about compatriot Yuri Zhirkov at Chelsea, he added: "But I am happy for Yuri Zhirkov, who won the Premier League with Chelsea.
"They deserved the trophy, as they were the strongest during the season."
Arshavin joined the Gunners from Zenit St Petersburg in a £12million transfer in January 2009.
At the time the international playmaker was strongly linked with a move to Spanish giants Barcelona.
