Mario Gomez has told kicker he could stay at Wolfsburg despite the club's struggles this season.
Gomez, 31, returned to Germany last summer following spells at Fiorentina and Besiktas, signing a three-year deal with Wolfsburg.
He said then that he would reassess his situation should the club miss out on qualification for a European competition.
But with Wolfsburg having gone through three coaches this season and still in danger of relegation, Gomez said: "We will sit down after the season and, if I have a good feeling, I will stay.
"If I have the feeling that there is gap between our goals and beliefs, we will look for solutions. I totally identify with our team."
Gomez, who has scored 14 goals for Wolfsburg, added: "I still believe that we are capable of very good things. I like it here, and I can imagine staying here."
The former Germany international was linked with a move to the Chinese Super League in the winter but said: "You do look at the amount of money offered and think what might be.
"I would never rule it out entirely, but I don't think it will happen. It just doesn't fit my life right now."
