Paris St Germain midfielder Clement Chantome insists he does not regret missing out on a move to Arsenal.
Chantome was wanted by the Gunners last summer, but stayed with PSG after the French giants refused to sanction his departure.
However, the 21-year-old has endured a frustrating campaign at the Parc des Princes after starting just four games in Ligue 1.
He is keen to make a name for himself at PSG, but concedes he will look to leave this summer if his opportunities will be limited again next season.
"Arsenal was an opportunity, but I don't regret my choice," Chantome told Aujourd'hui Sport.
"The talks reached a very advanced stage, but Paris and Paul Le Guen didn't want to let me leave.
"They don't want to let me leave again this summer. The officials told me that I represent the PSG image.
"I have three years remaining on my contract and I want to fulfil them. PSG is my club.
"However, if I have to experience the same season again, I would prefer to leave.
"Afte Paris it would be difficult to join another Ligue 1 club. I would prefer to join a foreign team, but I have no preference. I could even be attracted by Germany."
