Leonardo Ulloa says he will be forced to consider a move away from Leicester if he continues to be overlooked by Claudio Ranieri.
The 30-year-old former Almeria and Brighton & Hove Albion striker, who signed for the Foxes for a club-record £8m in 2014, is yet to start in the Premier League this season.
He has made just 13 substitute appearances after falling down the pecking order at the club.
Since the club were crowned league champions, Ranieri has added attackers Ahmed Musa and Islam Slimani to the squad.
Speaking ahead of the Foxes' clash with Manchester City on Saturday, Ulloa said: "I want to play always. If I don't have minutes here I need to look for another team. It is difficult for me, the decision.
"I am waiting for the window and waiting for the team and waiting for the manager. I want to speak to him and after we'll make a decision for the club, for the team and for me also.
"I have a contract here and I need to think a lot about my situation and after that we need to make the decision together."
He added: "It is the decision of the manager, we bought some strikers and now the manager it is his decision to play with the other strikers.
"Yes, it is strange for me because last season I had good minutes and some games and now it is more difficult."
