The Wales striker has become more and more frustrated as the season has progressed, making just four starts in The Premiership this term.
He has already seen two transfer requests rejected by Baggies boss Bryan Robson, but the option of selling the unsettled 24-year-old is reportedly now being seriously considered.
"It is as clear as crystal that I need to get away from West Brom for the sake of my domestic and international career," said Earnshaw.
"I don't really know what the future holds for me but is increasingly clear that it's not here and I have to do something about it.
"I have worked hard on my game and I think I deserve a better shot than I'm getting at the club."
Earnshaw is confident that he can succeed at the top level, so insists he has no other option but to leave The Hawthorns.
"I am disappointed and very frustrated. I know I can do myself justice in The Premiership,'' he concluded.
"I'm learning all the time but I need playing time and I'm not getting it at Albion so there's only one alternative.
"While I will always have a smile on my face, I am getting a bit disillusioned with it all because it affects my chances with Wales."
The striker has also called for an urgent probe into his transfer from Cardiff to West Brom.
Earnshaw has written to The FA to enquire about the move, claiming that he does not know who made money out of the deal.
"I would be grateful if you could investigate this using all means at your disposal," he wrote.
